Jean-Louis Tauran,born April 5th 1943,a Cardinal from October 2003,
died July 5th 2018 in Hartford,Connecticut...the Pope has sent a
letter of condolence to his sister,according to the Vatican.
Cardinal Tauran held several key positions in the governance of
the Catholic Church,including Secretary for Relations With States
from 1990 to 2003,Archivist and Librarian of the Holy Roman Church
from 2003 to 2007,President of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious
Dialogue from 2007 until his death,Protodeacon of the College of Cardinals
from 2011 to 2014,and Chamberlain of the Holy Roman Church from 2014
until his death.
As Protodeacon he announced the election of Pope Francis;
as Chamberlain (Camerlengo) he would have administered the
temporalities of the Church before the election of the next
Pope had he survived this pontificate.
He had been plagued by Parkinson's Disease and scoliosis for
many years,not sure why he chose Hartford as the site for
treatment of his last illness.
The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.
