Cardinal George has a fractured hip

I ask readers to please pray for my Cardinal, Francis Cardinal George. Below is a Catholic World News article concerning his accident.

Chicago, Apr. 9, 2007 ( - Chicago's Cardinal Francis George was released from a local hospital on Easter Sunday after suffering a fractured hip in an accident during a Holy Saturday service.

Cardinal George slipped and fell while he was blessing food baskets scheduled for Easter delivery by the members of St. Ferdinand's parish in Chicago's northwest. Participants in the service said that after sprinkling holy water, the cardinal evidently slipped on the wet marble floor.

I will start a Novena for him. A fractured hip can be serious given the right circumstances.

My favourite Priest who died last year first broke his hip and never recovered.

I pray this doesn't happen to Cardinal George.
