Please pray for the Archbishop of New Orleans!
New Orleans Archbishop Gregory Aymond said he tested positive for the novel coronavirus in a recent statement. The archbishop said he “had very mild symptoms, which included fever only.” He took a test out of precaution.
Here’s the statement below:
Abp. Aymond’s full statement reads, “Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, I have been feeling fine. Recently, I had very mild symptoms, which included fever only.
“Out of an abundance of caution, I took the coronavirus test, which came back positive.
“I have notified those with whom I have been in close proximity. Needless to say, I have self-quarantined in order to be responsible and not affect others. I will use this quiet time for additional prayer and sacrifice for all those seriously affected by this virus. I pray to get well soon and continue ministry.
“In the meantime, I will be present through Facebook and the archdiocesan website with reflection on this crisis and God’s healing power.
“Our Lady of Prompt Succor, pray for us!”
