Cardinal George Update

The Archdiocese of Chicago website reports that Cardinal George's surgery today for bladder cancer was successful and that he is doing well. If you go to the Archdiocesan webpage and scroll down you will see an amazing schedule of prayer and all night vigils for the Cardinal's recovery.

This is a very encouraging display of the love and concern that so many in the Archdiocese have for their spiritual father. Would that all Catholics throughout the world come to appreciate, pray for, and honor the shepherd that Christ has put there to guide them in thier own dioceses as these in Chicago are doing. Would that all shepherds be as faithful and deserving of this kind of response as is Cardinal George.
