Catholic News Service

Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan of New York, who was appointed Jan. 6 to the College of Cardinals by Pope Benedict XVI, has used his pulpit, be it in New York or Milwaukee, to promote and defend the Catholic faith.

When next summer ends, they will go their separate ways for the first time since first grade. While there are times they need a break from each other, for the most part it has been a great relationship between the two friends.
