Fr. Adolfo Nicolas, S.J. died at the age of 84 after a long illness. Rome Reports has more:

I remember being moved by Fr. Nicolas’ words in a video message he sent to the Pilgrims at World Youth Day in Krakow. He was disappointed to not be able to attend in person. He had fallen and the doctors ordered him to stay put. We put together a video for him and sent it back which reportedly moved him to tears.

An honorable man, and one respected by many. May he rest in peace. (Photo credit: America Magazine)
