Archbishop Expresses Appreciation for Prayers as He recovers from Pneumonia


The Archbishop of Canterbury has thanked Christians for their prayers as he recovers from a bout of pneumonia.

Most Revd Justin Welby had to miss his Christmas Day service because of his illness which was initially thought to be a bad cold.

He was ordered to take bed rest by doctors who had visited him at his home in Canterbury.

On Twitter he said:

“Grateful for prayers & support from so many, & to such a gracious God. Better fast, brill @NHSEngland, a gift! Sorry for missing Christmas”

On Christmas Day the Archbishop was unable to attend read his own sermon and instead the Dean of Canterbury, the Very Revd Robert Willis, delivered a homily.

Pneumonia is swelling of the tissue in one or both of your lungs and is usually caused by an infection.

Symptoms include a cough, fever and difficulty breathing and in patients with other health conditions it can be very serious.

Lambeth Palace has stressed that Archbishop Justin is on the mend.

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
