Archbishop Gregory could use your prayers

Atlanta's Archbishop Wilton Gregory will be going under the knife soon. Prayers are certainly in order. The announcement is here, and Rocco has more here.

On Monday morning, Nov. 5, I will undergo prostate surgery at Emory University Hospital. I was diagnosed with the early stage prostate cancer after a biopsy in September. I have sought additional medical advice, and I have decided to have this surgery as the best response to my condition.
As he says later in the announcement, if you're in a high-risk category, this is a good reminder to get yourself checked out. Don't wait. Please. Waiting is what likely cost my aunt her life, and it simply won't do you any good anyway. Death from obstinacy or laziness are not equivalent to martyrdom so be smart - God isn't done with you yet.
