Archbishop Dolan: Cardinal Designate

The Vatican has just announced Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan, who has led the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York for nearly three years, will be named a cardinal by Pope Benedict XVI. “As a kid, I just wanted to be a parish priest,” the cardinal-designate said in an early morning news conference at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan. “And to think that now the pope has named me a cardinal— that’s awesome.” Archbishop Dolan called his mother after receiving the news from the Vatican’s representative in Washington on Thursday morning. “She said it’s about time,” the archbishop said, laughing. “Only moms can say that. ” The full list of cardinals-designate can be viewed here .
