Just a few moments ago I received word of the death of His Eminence John Patrick Cardinal Foley, a priest of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, former President of the Pontifical Council for Social Communication, and Grand Master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem.
If you do not know the Cardinal's face, you likely know his voice. For twenty-six years, Cardinal Foley provided commentary for the Holy Father's Mass During the Night (a.k.a., Midnight Mass) each Christmas.
Rocco Palmo offers a tribute to His Eminence here and provides for us a statement from His Excellency Archbishop Edwin O'Brien, Pro-Grand Master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem.
May Cardinal Foley rejoice this day in the company of the angels and saints and behold the face of God.
