The President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, was released from hospital on Tuesday, and has entered a “standard rehabilitation program”, expected to last about two weeks. The Archbishop of Galveston-Houston had suffered a mild stroke on Friday, 15 March, while leading the Stations of the Cross.
According to a statement from the Archdiocese, doctors expect Cardinal DiNardo to make a full recovery. Cardinal DiNardo thanked his caregivers: “I could not be more grateful to the truly wonderful doctors and nurses at St. Joseph’s [Hospital] for their expert care and compassion, which has helped hasten my way down the road to a full recovery,” he said. “I am also doubly thankful for the many kind wishes and especially the prayers that have been directed towards my healing, which I can assure you are making a true difference. I look forward to getting back to work soon and continuing the important work we have before us.”
The USCCB has also issued a statement, joining the Archdiocese in continued prayers for Cardinal DiNardo’s full recovery.
