Spanish Cardinal Carlos Amigo Vallejo, an advocate for dialogue between Christians, Muslims, and Jews, died on Wednesday at the age of 87.
The archbishop emeritus of Seville died from heart failure at the University Hospital of Guadalajara, Spain, after his health declined following an April 25 operation to remove fluid from his left lung.
Amigo also underwent surgery at the end of February for a fractured hip, after he fell during a Mass at Almudena Cathedral in Madrid, where the retired archbishop resided.
Pope Francis expressed his condolences in a telegram sent to Archbishop Josep Ángel Sáiz Meneses of Seville on April 27.
