Pope Francis and CCCB PresidentThe Most Reverend Paul-André Durocher, Archbishop of Gatineau and President of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB), has conveyed to Pope Francis the condolences and prayers of all the Bishops of Canada following the tragic death of three members of his family in a traffic accident in Argentina. Mrs. Valeria Carmona, wife of the Pope's nephew Emanuel Horacio Bergoglio, and their two young sons, José and Antonio, were both killed. The Holy Father's 38-year-old nephew (the son of the Pope's late brother Alberto) is currently in critical condition in hospital.
