Delightfully Dolan

Dubbed the ‘rock star’ of the latest consistory, Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York certainly left an impression in the Vatican, if he hadn’t already. The exuberant new cardinal was hand-picked by the Holy Father to address the assembled College of Cardinals on the day before the consistory (an honour usually reserved for an established high-ranking cardinal) and subsequently thanked by the pope for his “stimulating, joyful and profound” words.

Today, the new cardinals were invited to once again meet with the Holy Father, but this time they brought family and friends. Cardinal Dolan brought, among others, his mother to meet the pope, who is only one year her senior. It was evidently a joyful occasion…
