Auxiliary bishop emeritus Jaroslav Škavrada died in Prague on Monday at the age of 85, a spokesman for the Prague Archbishopric said. The Prague-born cleric spent most of his time abroad; in Rome, he worked as a secretary to Cardinal Beran and also cooperated with the Voice of America, Radio Free Europe and Vatican Radio. Jaroslav Škavrada was ordained bishop in 1983, ten years before he returned to the Czech Republic.
