Chicago's Catholic Cardinal George Has Recurrence of Cancer

Chicago’s Roman Catholic Cardinal Francis George had cancerous cells removed from his kidney and liver this week, six years after he underwent surgery for bladder cancer, the diocese said on Friday.


God grant your faithful servant strength to continue on your mission until he is deemed ready to come home to be with you in Paradise.


This is a recurrence with Cancer for the Cardinal. I can tell you beyond a doubt he has had an overflowing plate, and lots of battles to fight. He has been in combat with the gay activists, Governor Quinn, and last but not least Fr. Pfleger. And this is above and beyond his normal duties. He needs our prayers. And it wouldn’t hurt to start praying for the incoming Cardinal. Anyone who takes Chicago will be walking into the Lion’s Den.
