Church to find successor for Chicago archbishop

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago’s archbishop says the Roman Catholic Church has told him it will begin searching for his successor because of his “uncertain” health as he undergoes chemotherapy.

Cardinal Francis George spoke Friday about upcoming canonizations of two popes and his health, almost a month after being hospitalized for flu-like symptoms and dehydration.

He says lengthy, formal process has not begun, but will start soon.

The 77-year-old spiritual leader of Chicago’s more than 2 million Catholics said he’d like to meet his successor.

He’d hoped to travel to the Vatican later this month, but says: “I don’t want to do something dangerous.”

Treatment of the cancer near his right kidney has resumed after being interrupted during his recent hospitalization.

George survived bladder cancer eight years ago.
