In an e-mail received from Dr William Tighe during the night:
Coming across an online report that Fr John Hunwicke had been severely injured in an accident in Rome, I rang him up, and his wife confirmed the report. On Monday, October 29, on the third day of a long-planned trip to Rome, he fell down the stairs of St. Peter’s Basilica, shattering his left humeral bone. He has undergone “reconstrcttive surgery” (and may have more), and is heavily sedated and in a good deal of pain. His 71st birthday will be in early December. and his healing will take quite some time.
