Francis Cardinal George is celebrating 50 years as a priest. The Cardinal said many celebrations have touched him deeply, but this one is very special.
Cardinal George marked his Golden Jubilee with a public mass at Holy Name Cathedral on Sunday. He was born in chicago and returned 15 years ago to lead the archdiocese.
The cardinal has survived two bouts with cancer. He handed in his official resignation when he turned 75 last year– which is customary. But he hasn’t indicated when he’ll step down.
