Placing Francis Cardinal George in God's Hands

This evening our local news stations reported that Francis Cardinal George, Roman Catholic Archbishop for Chicago, has once again begun aggressive chemotherapy for a return of cancer.

While His Eminence and I, are members of two of the various Catholic jurisdictions, he and I are both brother priests and sons of the same Father. Although he and I have not agreed on some pastoral and sacramental issues, I am called by faith and fraternity to hold him in prayer and to ask God to give him, along with all who struggle from life-threatening illness, comfort, hope and peace.

I invite all persons of good will to place His Eminence in God's hands.
