CHICAGO - The Chicago Archdiocese announced Friday that Cardinal Francis George, 75, is facing serious health issues:
Cardinal Francis George underwent a procedure on Wednesday, August 15, at Loyola University Medical Center.
Today he met with his doctors who reviewed with him test results which showed there were cancerous cells in the kidney and in a nodule, which was removed from the liver.
His doctors will work with the Cardinal to plan a course of treatment.
The Cardinal will be resting at home this weekend and will be on retreat next week.
We have no further information at this time.
The Cardinal most recently spoke out against Mayor Rahm Emanuel's "Chicago values" and the Chick-fil-A controversy.
