Chicago’s Francis Cardinal George is cancer free once again.

The Chicago Archdiocese confirmed that the Cardinal’s latest tests came up clean.

The Cardinal recently wrapped up chemotherapy treatments after doctors found cancerous cells on his liver and a kidney six months ago.

This is the second time the Cardinal has battled cancer.

He had his bladder and prostate removed during his first battle in 2006.

    Great report, Randi. I was at the Cardinal's talk at Loyola Law School yesterday, and he was brilliant, as usual. Just fyi "Papacy" is pronounced "PAY-pacy", not "PAP-acy." (And don't even get me started on your colleagues in the media who keep pronouncing "Petrine" as if it rhymes with "latrine!")
