Congratulatory message to HE Bishop Ayuso Guixot from WCC General Secretary

It was with great joy that I received the news that you have been nominated by His Holiness Pope Francis to become a Cardinal. We lift our hearts in joy and thanksgiving on this day that the Lord has made. Even as you prepare to take up this calling may I greet you with the words of the Apostle Peter “” (1 Peter 1:3). We at the World Council of Churches consider this to be both a fitting recognition of your dedicated and distinguished work in the field of interreligious relations and also a welcome signal of how highly the work of PCID continues to be valued.
