George said the formal process of selecting his replacement has not started, but will begin soon.
Francis Cardinal George is not slowing down, despite looming treatments for recurrent cancer in his right kidney.
This is the cardinal’s second with cancer. He was diagnosed with bladder cancer in 2006; this past summer, he was diagnosed with kidney cancer.
For the first time since being diagnosed with cancer and beginning a long and difficult course of treatment, Cardinal Francis George was speaking out about his fight for life, as well as his future.
Cardinal George on Wednesday started a four-month course of cancer treatment.
Cardinal Francis George will undergo a series of chemotherapy treatments starting next week, to treat his latest bout with cancer.
