Cardinal Vlk on the mend


Cardinal Miloslav Vlk who was hospitalized with heart problems and a state of exhaustion earlier this month is said to be on the mend. A spokesman for the Prague Archbishopric told the press that the cardinal was feeling better and would shortly be moved to a spa to fully regain his strength. The cardinal was actively involved in talks on the proposed bill on church restitutions as well as a protracted court dispute over the ownership of St. Vitus’ Cathedral in Prague.
