I would like to applaud new Cardinal Timothy Dolan, who is going to do great things for the Catholic Church. More than that, I believe he honors New York, America, and the world.
As a Catholic and a grand knight in the Knights of Columbus, I feel this is a momumental occasion not only for Cardinal Dolan but also for all of us in need of a good shepherd in these most troubling of times. I also find his approach to evangelizing most enlightening, as he said, “The new evangelization is accomplished with a smile, not a frown.” I will try that myself in hopes of bringing others back to the faith who have dropped out.
Cardinal Dolan has also been outspoken on important issues like same-sex marriage, abortion, Catholic education and family values. He now is in a position to make a profound difference and will do battle on these issues.
Who knows, maybe Cardinal Dolan could be the next pope, an achievement that might be accomplished with a smile. He does a lot of that. May God bless you, your Eminence Cardinal Timothy Dolan.
