CARDINAL MAHONY REVEALS HAS CANCER, WILL HAVE OPERATION

          LOS ANGELES (CWNews.com) - Cardinal Roger Mahony of Los Angeles announced on Thursday that he has prostate cancer and will undergo surgery next week to have his prostate gland removed.

          The cardinal acknowledged that he was diagnosed with the cancer earlier this year, but put off the scheduled surgery until after the busy Lent and Easter seasons. The 62-year-old cardinal said the cancer was detected in its early stages. "I am very grateful to almighty God for the advance warning of this potentially serious form of cancer," Cardinal Mahony said.

          The operation is scheduled for June 15 and he said doctors told him they expect him to make a full recovery. Cardinal Mahony succeed Cardinal Timothy Manning as leader of the largest archdiocese in the United States in September, 1985.
