Abp. Dolan Confirmed for New York

I posted on this earlier this month, but the official Vatican announcement was made today. Archbishop Dolan of Milwaukee, a St. Louis native, is the new Archbishop of New York. Undoubtedly the Saint Louis Archdiocesan website will have further information later today.

This is a most unfortunate appointment.

I don't know enough about Archbishop Dolan to comment intelligently, which is one reason my coverage has been so light on this appointment. I hope it is not "a most unfortunate" appointment. I hear good and bad, so I am inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt.

Of course, the positive coverage from the New York secular press doesn't fill me with joy. Yet there have been positive steps vis-a-vis life issues and traditional practice that he took in Milwaukee. So, again, I will give the benefit of the doubt.

Pray for him and his flock in New York.
