Edouard Cardinal Gagnon, P.S.S., President Emeritus of the Pontifical Council for the Family, has died.
He served as Bishop of Saint Paul in Alberta, Canada before beginning his service in the Roman Curia.
He was 89 years old and had celebrated his 67 anniversary of priestly ordination less than a fortnight ago. He served as a bishop for 38 years and as a cardinal for 22 years.
May he rest in peace.
