“The Very Reverend Father Erik Varden, newly elected Bishop Prelate of Trondheim, for reasons of health, and following the directions of his doctors, needs to take a period of rest.  The Holy Father, taking this and the medical recommendations into account, has decided to suspend the Episcopal consecration for now.  He grants Father Varden a period of rest for several months, awaiting a hoped-for recovery.”
