It is with deep sadness that we announce that our ICLARS’ member, Prof. Padilla, has died on June 17th, 2020 in Buenos Aires due to COVID after a surgery. He was the current President of the Latin American Consortium of Religious Freedom as well as one of its founders. He was very much involved in different associations concerning religious freedom, ecumenical and interreligious dialogue. All his excellent gifts as a Constitutional Law professor and professional skills were outstanding but, even more his kindness, sense of humor, culture, welcoming personality and the art of giving harmony wherever he was.
He will be very missed. We send all our love to his widow Gloria Williams with whom he shared their passion in ecumenism and interreligious dialogue, through their 49 years of marriage with seven children and so many grandchildren.
