Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York, released the following statement on the passing of Cardinal Francis George, Archbishop Emeritus of Chicago:
"While we have all realized for a while that it was near, the passing of Cardinal Francis George still comes as a jolt, and leaves us with a sense of emptiness and loss.
I assure Archbishop Cupich and the Catholic family of Chicago of our love, condolences, and prayers here in New York.
I will miss him as a pastor, friend, and guide, and can only thank God for the gift that he was and will ever be."
