Archbishop Montalvo, R.I.P.
Only today did I catch news of the death of His Excellency, Archbishop Gabriel Montalvo, retired Apostolic Nuncio of the Pope to the United States of America. He retired not long ago and moved to Rome. As I was reading today my copy of the National Catholic Register I came across the news story of his death in Rome on August 2. Apparently, he died of lung cancer. As part of his long and distinguished career in the Church involved direct service to the Church in the United States, it seems appropriate to me that we report his death here and ask for prayers for the repose of his soul. May he rest in peace!
