Cardinal tweets tribute to Lou Reed

Musician mourned

Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi has paid tribute to the late rock ‘n roll icon Lou Reed in a series of tweets, reports The Catholic Herald.

Cardinal Ravasi, the head of the Vatican’s culture ministry, commemorated the singer by quoting a verse from his song Perfect Day.

Cardinal Ravasi, whose twitter name is @cardravasi, wrote: 'Oh, it’s such a perfect day, I’m glad I spend it with you, Oh, such a perfect day, You just keep me hanging on (Lou Reed).'

The cardinal followed this initial tweet with a passage from the bible which included a further quotation from the song: 'Be under no illusion: God will not be fooled. You’re going to reap just what you sow (Galatians 6,7 and Lou Reed in Perfect Day).'
