The Archbishop of Prague Dominik Duka, newly elevated to the post of cardinal in a ceremony at the Vatican on Saturday, returned to Prague on Tuesday. The cardinal headed straight for St. Vitus’ Cathedral where he bowed to the relics of Saint Adalbert and knelt for a few minutes in silent prayer. He was then received by President Václav Klaus who said Dominik Duka’s appointment to the post of cardinal was confirmation of the good work of the Czech Catholic Church in upholding basic Christian values in present-day Czech society. Alongside his predecessor, former Prague archbishop Miloslav Vlk, Dominik Duka is the country’s second living cardinal.
