Update on Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP

Catholic Communications, Sydney Archdiocese,
4 Jan 2016

The Archbishop of Sydney, Most Reverend Anthony Fisher OP is recovering in hospital after being diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome.

The Archbishop took ill just prior to Christmas and was admitted to St Vincent's Hospital following an infection which was complicated by an immune-related pathology. Symptoms include varying degrees of muscle weakness, and while its onset is sudden and unexpected, the great majority of people make a full recovery.

The Archbishop has responded well to medical treatment. He is grateful for the messages of support he has received and for the prayers offered for him and is looking forward to making a full recovery. Please continue to pray for the Archbishop's recovery.
