IN a letter to the people of his Archdiocese Cardinal McGuigan. Archbishop of Toronto, announces that Pope John has given him a coadjutor "at my insistent request" because of poor health.
The letter, which was read while the Cardinal was in Rome last week, coincided with the announcement that Archbishop Pocock, of Winnipeg had been named coadjutor with right of succession to the See. He is 54.
Cardinal McGuigan, who is 66, has been Archbishop of Toronto since 1934. He was named Cardinal by Pope Pius XII in 1946. The Cardinal concludes the message to his diocese by stating that Archbishop Pocock will, from the moment he takes over. enjoy complete jurisdiction without reserve, and it is the wish of the Cardinal that the clergy and the faithful turn to him only in all that regards the spiritual and temporal administration of the Archdiocese.
