“Cardinal Francis George led a remarkable life of faith and service. As Chicago’s first native-born Archbishop, his journey took him full-circle from growing up in Portage Park to serving in far-flung missions around the globe, and eventually back home to shepherd the City of Chicago towards a better future.
He lent his counsel to those in distress, his comfort to those in despair and he inspired us all with his courage in his final days. He could always be counted on to provide those granite qualities to the countless people who relied on them when it mattered the most.
Amy and I join every Chicagoan in extending our deepest sympathies to Cardinal George’s family, his many friends, and the Archdiocese of Chicago during this difficult time.”
