In a letter sent to all the Bishops of England and Wales, the President of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales, Cardinal Vincent Nichols, has shared that the Cardinal’s health has taken a defining turn and that he is now in hospital.
 
Cardinal Cormac asks most sincerely for prayers, Cardinal Nichols writes, knowing that "these loving prayers are a source of great strength and comfort as he calmly ponders on all that lies ahead, all in God's good time. May the Lord strengthen him in faith and trust and may the prayers of the Church, which he loves so much, comfort and uphold him.”
