Archbishop Gabriel’s health

Archbishop Gabriel was victim to a small brain haemorrhage at the end of last week, after the celebration of the feast of the Nativity according to the Julian calendar. According to the doctors, this haemorrhage is a sequela of the chemotherapy treatment which he had received during 2011. He went into Bichat Hospital on the evening of Saturday 7th January, and he was discharged on Monday 9th January. He feels well, but following the advice of the doctors he left immediately to rest. He has cancelled all his appointments for the month of January.
