Italian Cardinal Agostino Cacciavillan passed away on March 5, 2022 at the age of 95, Vatican News reports. After serving as Apostolic Nuncio to the United States, he presided over the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See (APSA) from 1998 to 2002, during the pontificate of John Paul II. The Polish pope created him a cardinal at the 2001 consistory, alongside Archbishop Bergoglio, the current Pope Francis.

Agostino Cacciavillan, born in 1926 and ordained a priest in 1949, was originally from the diocese of Vicenza, in the Veneto region – like the current Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin.
