Abp. Dolan's latest service will be a great one
One thing led to another, as they say, and today Abp. Timothy Dolan of New York, in a stunning break with the way things were supposed to happen, was elected president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
Abp. Dolan wants no congratulations, but he regularly begs for prayers, so, while we are baking cookies with green M&Ms to celebrate his election, we will also remember to pray for the former ecclesial greens-keeper as he takes on his latest project to help the Church. And keep in mind, he shoulders this role without the customary three-years to “read up” on things.
If any congrats are due, it’s congrats to the bishops’ conference for having had the good sense to choose Abp. Timothy Dolan as their leader.
Now, about those cookies!
