Vatican City, Apr 5, 2018 / 04:12 am
On Thursday Pope Francis appointed Msgr. Marc V. Trudeau, who survived lymphoma in 2008, an auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.
Trudeau joins Archbishop Jose H. Gomez and five other auxiliary bishops of Los Angeles, the largest archdiocese in the United States.
In 2008 he was diagnosed with lymphoma and underwent chemo and radiation therapy for three years before becoming cancer free. He told Angelus News, the newspaper of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, that having cancer 10 years ago gave him "a different view of life."
"The little things are not so important anymore," he noted. "I appreciate the things that are important, and I don't sweat the small stuff anymore."
