Cardinal on Pope’s advisory board: I ‘fully support’ jailed Canadian pro-lifer
Aug. 9, 2013
An influential Indian Cardinal says he “fully support[s]” the efforts of a Canadian pro-lifer who is serving a long-term stint in jail for entering abortion facilities to rescue unborn babies. Cardinal Oswald Gracias, Archbishop of Bombay, was recently tapped by Pope Francis to join an eight-cardinal advisory board charged with assisting the Pope in reforming the Roman Curia. He also serves as president of the Federation of Asian Bishops' Conferences. The Cardinal spoke with LifeSiteNews’ editor-in-chief, John-Henry Westen, on Friday at the Vanier Centre for Women in Milton, Ontario. The Cardinal was at the prison to visit Mary Wagner, who has been arrested repeatedly for peacefully entering abortion facilities to speak with abortion-bound women.
