BRAIN TUMOR REMOVED FROM CARDINAL O'CONNOR OF NEW YORK

Returned Home After 10 Days in Hospital

        NEW YORK, SEP 5, 1999 (ZENIT).- Cardinal John O'Connor, Archbishop of New York, returned home yesterday after having a small brain tumor removed during his 10 days in the hospital.

        A statement released yesterday by New York Archdiocese spokesman, Joseph Zwilling, said: "Doctors removed a small tumor from the surface of the cardinal's brain. They determined that no other areas of the body were affected. A course of radiation therapy will begin shortly and continue over the next several weeks."

        The statement added: "Under the leadership of his personal physician, Dr. Kevin Cahill, and Dr. Thomas Faye of Memorial Sloan-Kettering, a team of doctors performed a thorough series of tests over the course of six days. Complete results were given to the cardinal on Friday."

        New York mayor Rudi Giuliani, conveyed his esteem and support of Cardinal O'Connor who he called "equally beloved as a religious leader and a New Yorker."

        "For many years, people of all faiths have looked to Cardinal O'Connor for wisdom, leadership and spiritual guidance," Giuliani said. "I join all New Yorkers in praying for him and wishing him a speedy recovery."

        Eileen White, special counsel to the cardinal, who visited him yesterday afternoon at his Madison Avenue residence behind St. Patrick's Cathedral said: "He's happy to be home ... and getting back on his feet. His spirits are great and he's comfortable." ZE99090525
