Statement from Governor Rick Scott Regarding the Passing of Cuban Auxiliary Bishop Agustín Román

“I join the community of Cuban exiles throughout Florida in mourning the passing of a man who was the right person to bring peace and understanding between Cuba and the Cuban community in Miami.

“With the passing of Bishop Román, Florida has lost a tremendous leader who spent his life wholeheartedly serving others in spite of his deep desire and longing for a free and democratic Cuba. He loved his native country, as well as America and the freedom our nation offers. His life serves as shining example of what it means to follow Jesus Christ’s direction that the greatest among us are the humble servants who seek no reward for themselves.”
