Bishop Doyle • Diocese of Texas
The Rt. Rev. C. Andrew Doyle writes to members of the Diocese of Texas:
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
I write to let you know that I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in October.
JoAnne and I have been assured by my very capable doctors that this particular cancer is completely treatable with surgery and medication. I will undergo surgery on March 3, and I look forward to a full recovery.
The shock of this kind of news at any time is upending, to say the least. The cancer diagnosis reminded me, and underscored for me, my complete dependence on a compassionate and merciful God who removes fear and uncertainty.
I have been in prayer, under spiritual direction and on retreat. I am ready for the surgery and what comes after. We have asked a few close friends to be present during my short stay in the hospital.
