Tutu asks prayers for ailing Mandela

Archbishop Desmond Tutu has asked for prayers for Nelson Mandela. RTE News reports:

Archbishop Desmond Tutu has called on South Africans to pray for former president Nelson Mandela who remains in hospital in Pretoria.

Mr Mandela, 94, was taken to hospital after his condition deteriorated.

He is said to be breathing unaided and is in a serious but stable condition.

The Times of London notes that Tutu requested prayers for Mandela’s “comfort and dignity” and not for recovery.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
