He made an announcement this week.

The remarkable Bishop Michael Curry shot to Internet fame following the Royal wedding in May.

The Bishop passionately addressed the attendees of Meghan and Harry’s nuptials.

And honestly, we’ll always remember it!

It has now been revealed that Bishop Michael Curry is battling prostate cancer, and probably was in the lead up to the wedding also.

He told members of his church: “A few months ago, through my annual physical, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer.”

“After a variety of tests, consultations, and conversations with my wife and daughters, I decided on a surgical treatment course.”

“On this coming Tuesday, July 31, I will have surgery to remove the prostate gland.”

“I am happy to say that the prognosis looks very good and quite positive.”

He continued: “I have spoken with several others who have gone through this, and who have offered both encouragement and helpful advice.”

“I will be in the hospital for at least a day, then at home to recuperate.”

“I’ve been told that four to six weeks is a reasonable time to anticipate.”

“I plan to resume my duties in early September and I do not anticipate any significant changes in my commitments.”

“I am very blessed with a wonderful family, a first-rate medical team, a great staff, dear colleagues and friends, a calling to which I have given my life, and above all a good, great and loving God in whose hands we always remain.”

“So, do say a prayer. And know that I look forward to being back at my post in September.”

Get well soon Bishop!
