Chicago’s Cardinal-Archbishop Francis George will not travel to Rome for the 27 April canonisations of Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II after taking medical advice, the archdiocese said on Tuesday.
Last month the cardinal, 77, announced he had been given a new cancer diagnosis and received two doses of chemotherapy, one of which led to him requiring hospitalisation.
Pope John XXIII appointed George a bishop and Blessed John Paul II made him a cardinal.
