  1. This is really a blow for our brothers and sisters in Cuba. The Metropolitan Council choosing another woman for the position would be questioned, but choosing a man could be viewed as "business as usual."

    May God comfort the church in Cuba for this loss, as well as her family and close friends.

    I pray for the repose of +Nerva's soul.

    Rest in peace your Excellency..

  2. It is with sadness that I learn of the passing of Bishop Nerva. May the Lord bless the Church as it continues to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
