LONDON (RNS) — Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor,  leader of the Catholic Church of England and Wales for nine years, died Friday (Sept. 1) after a battle with cancer, church authorities said.

“I am at peace and have no fear of what is to come,” he wrote in a message shortly before his death at age 85 to Cardinal Vincent Nichols, his successor. “I have received many blessings in my life, especially from my family and friends.”

Murphy-O’Connor’s career was marked by his efforts to improve relations between Catholics and Anglicans, but also tarnished by a scandal over his transfer of a priest who had confessed to the sexual abuse of boys.
