Archbishop of Ho Chi Minh City passes away in Rome following cardiac arrest

These are most likely the last words captured on video of Paul Bui Van Doc, archbishop of Ho Chi Minh City. 

The archbishop suffered cardiac arrest during a Mass in St. Paul Outside-the-Walls on Tuesday and passed away later that evening. 

He was in the Eternal City for the ad limina visit along with the rest of the country's bishops and met with Pope Francis on Monday.
