He travelled to India as papal legate in 2011, to mark the Silver Jubilee of Pope John Paul II's visit.
The cardinal will celebrate his birthday with a Mass of thanksgiving in Westminster Cathedral on Friday 21 September. He will retain his titular church in Rome, the Basilica of Santa Maria sopra Minerva, but will no longer be eligible to vote in a papal conclave.
