STATEMENT OF THE FRANCISCAN FRIARS OF THE RENEWAL
ON THE DEATH OF HIS EMINENCE, FRANCIS CARDINAL GEORGE
The Friars wish to express their sadness upon learning of the passing of Cardinal Francis George.
We are particularly thankful for the friendship, guidance and example of Cardinal George. A fellow religious and stalwart leader of the Archdiocese of Chicago, His Eminence was a prophetic voice in our times. We are especially grateful for his support of our Father Bob Lombardo and the Mission of Our Lady of the Angels outreach on the West Side of Chicago.
May his soul, and the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
