Catholic Church

Chicago Archdiocese

Chicago's archbishop says the Roman Catholic Church has told him it will begin searching for his successor because of his ``uncertain'' health as
he undergoes chemotherapy.
 
 Cardinal Francis George spoke Friday about upcoming canonizations of two popes
and his health, almost a month after being hospitalized for flu-like symptoms and dehydration.
 
He says lengthy, formal process has not begun, but will start soon.
 
The 77-year-old spiritual leader of Chicago's more than 2 million Catholics said he'd like to meet his successor.
