Cardinal Dolan asks for prayers for Cardinal George

Cardinal Timothy Dolan made the following request today on the website of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York:

Prayers for Cardinal George

I would like to ask you to please keep Francis Cardinal George, the Archbishop of Chicago, in your prayers in a special way these days.  The Archdiocese of Chicago has announced that Cardinal George has been diagnosed with cancerous cells in his kidney and in a nodule that was removed from his liver.  The Cardinal previously fought bladder cancer 6 years ago.

Cardinal George is a hero of mine.  He is an outstanding Archbishop, and has been a great help and inspiration to me as my immediate predecessor as president of the USCCB.

I know that the Cardinal will face this latest challenge as he faces all challenges: with great strength and great peace, born of a deep love of God and trust in His divine will.
