Calling prayers and well wishes for Cardinal Francis George a “significant aspect of his continuing health journey,” the Archdiocese of Chicago has set up a link on its Web site for the public to directly contact the Catholic leader.
George, 75, announced last week that cancer was found in his kidney and liver, six years after he underwent surgery for cancer in his bladder, prostate and ureter. He is on his annual retreat this week and will also be undergoing additional medical tests.
Prayers can be sent through www.archchicago.org or addressed to Francis Cardinal George, OMI, Archbishop of Chicago, 835 North Rush Street, Chicago, Illinois, 60611.
The Cardinal will receive all messages sent to him, a statement from the Archdiocese said.
