Prayer Request for Rome's Finest Monsignor

Urgent prayers are asked for the health and well-being of the great Msgr. Ignacio Barreiro.
Il Monsignore was suddenly diagnosed with cancer early this week. He underwent surgery on Thursday, but the cancer is apparently advanced.

Monsignor is one of the few very finest priests in Rome.

He is a brilliant intellectual who has lived a storied life. He has the mind of a rapier.
One of my best Rome memories is attending his Low Mass in Trastevere back in the 1990s at Santa Maria della Luce.
He is faithful and diligent, keen and merciful. A gentleman from the old school. And he smokes wonderful cigars.
Thank you for your prayers for this noble son of Holy Mother Church.
