( - Father Nguyen Van Ly (63), a Vietnamese priest who has spent more than 15 years in prison, has been temporarily released from detention on medical grounds.

Father Van Ly, who suffered his third stroke in November 2009 has recently been diagnosed with a brain tumour. His right leg and arm are partially paralyzed, making it difficult for him to eat or write.

Father Van Ly was sent to a church-run home on March 15 for one year of medical treatment, after which he is expected to be returned to prison. (Sources: Christian Solidarity Worldwide, Union of Catholic Asian News, AsiaNews)

Thank the Lord that Father Van Ly has been temporarily released. Pray for his renewed health and strength. Pray that he will not have to return to prison and that the false charges placed against him will be dropped. Pray for other Vietnamese Christians languishing in prison.
