Archbishop Dolan to New York?
Long-rumored, now the subject of "confirmed" rumors on two blogs and an Italian newspaper, is the imminent appointment of native St. Louisan, former Auxiliary Bishop of Saint Louis and current Archbishop of Milwaukee Timothy Dolan to the See of New York.
I won't over-analyze the choice, as others with more knowledge will do so, and with the understanding that New York is a delicate Archdiocesan appointment. But I will point out that Archbishop Dolan did invite the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest into the Milwaukee Archdiocese, so that alone makes the move a hopeful one for New York.
