Chicago cardinal resumes chemo, won't travel to Rome for canonizations

 | 

Cardinal Francis George of Chicago has resumed his chemotherapy that had been delayed because of an infection he incurred in late March, according to an archdiocesan statement released Tuesday.

Upon the advice of his doctors, the cardinal has decided to remain in Chicago and not travel to Rome for the April 27 canonization of Blesseds John Paul II and John XXIII, as he had originally planned, the statement said.
