I would like to praise Pope Benedict XVI for elevating Archbishop Timothy Dolan to Cardinal. I feel Dolan truly is a priest who has served the people. He has been outspoken on important issues like same-sex marriage, abortion, Catholic education and family values. He has not been afraid to speak his mind, communicates from his heart and has possessed the common touch. He feels deeply for the poor and the sick. He has a voice that he has used well to defend and promote the priniciples of the church, and he will be stronger still as a Cardinal.

As a Catholic and a Grand Knight of St. Anastasia Knights of Columbus in Douglaston, I feel this is a very proud moment for many New Yorkers. I firmly believe Dolan can make a profound difference on the Catholic church in America and the world. May God bless you Dolan, and bless you in your work as Cardinal.
