The surgeon who performed an operation on Cardinal Robert Sarah in southern Italy in July said that treating the Guinean cardinal allowed him to see the prominent churchman in a new way.
“When he was alone in his room, I took a few chances to talk to him a bit,” Domenico Veneziano told CNA.
The doctor said when he visited Sarah’s hospital room, “I could feel his holiness... He told me about the popes and their uniqueness. We also had a few chances to joke.”
“I can say that it’s been an honor to know both sides of Cardinal Sarah: the man and the Eminence,” Veneziano said, referring to the title of honor given to cardinals.
