Cardinal Receives Lap-Band

Heavily overweight Cardinal Gérald Cyprien Lacroix, 62, of Québec will receive weight loss surgery.

This can be done in a variety of ways by reducing the volume of the stomach. This surgery is not a miracle solution and requires a good dose of will to be successful.

Lacroix told that, despite the taboo surrounding this type of operation, he wanted to talk about it to avoid unnecessary rumours about his absence.

"Taking care of your health is a fundamental duty for each of us in order to be able to accomplish the mission entrusted,” Lacroix lectured.

The surgery will take place at the beginning of January. After that, Lacroix will be absent for at least two months.

In Quebec, 4500 bariatric surgeries are performed each year.

Silly reporting.
(1) Overeating is only a mortal sin when it's harming your health, would you rather he remain in mortal sin ? (2) Is taking diabetes medication a "worldly" solution too ? (3) Canada has universal health care and it doesn't cost faithful Catholics anything (4) See my response to # 1
"Overeating is only a mortal sin when it's harming your health," Jesus said differently, Fatty. "Woe to you that are filled: for you shall hunger." (Luke 6:25)
too much seating and eating
Thors Catholic Hammer
Obesity is caused by gluttony. One would expect even a half taught catholic child to understand that. This so called "cardinal" is resorting to expensive and dangerous surgery to cure his gluttony problem.
The college of catholic cardinals now clearly contain a large number of individuals who no longer believe in the power of confession to cure the temptations of the flesh.
