A major gathering of Roman Catholic leaders is under way in Baltimore, and Francis Cardinal George got an especially warm welcome.

"Cardinal George, how happy we are to see you here, thanks be to God, that's an indication," said Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan, President, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Cardinal George appeared fit on the first day of the General Assembly of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

The cardinal began receiving chemotherapy in September after doctors found cancerous cells in his kidney and liver.
