The following notices were posted recently on the website of the Archdiocese of Chicago regarding Cardinal Francis George, one of our former bishops. Please keep the Cardinal in your prayers.
As announced on Friday, August 17, Cardinal George learned from his doctors that test results from a procedure earlier in the week showed there were cancerous cells in his kidney and in a nodule that was removed from his liver.
The Cardinal rested at home this weekend and was actively engaged in a number of his administrative responsibilities. This week he will continue additional testing, participate in his annual retreat and maintain his previously scheduled public commitments.
After the Cardinal meets with his doctors regarding a plan for a course of treatment, further information about his upcoming public schedule will be announced.Until further information is available, Cardinal George has asked for continued prayers for all affected by cancer and the doctors and medical staff that work with patients and their families, as well as for himself.
