BARCELONA, SPAIN (Catholic Online) - Pope Francis has sent condolences to the current archbishop of Barcelona, Cardinal Lluis Martinez Sistach.

Pope Francis said he was praying for the soul of the Cardinal and praised him for exercising "his episcopal ministry with diligent apostolic care, first as bishop of Tortosa and subsequently in the Archdiocese of Barcelona, dedicating himself constantly to the evangelizing mission, with wisdom and generosity, and indefatigably taking on numerous pastoral initiatives, with great closeness to the priests, to consecrated people and seminarians, to whom he dedicated particular attention," according to Vatican Radio.

Pope Francis also sent condolences to the Cardinal's family and those who knew him personally.
