This is yesterday's news, but I wanted Our Lady to stay at the top of the blog for her feast day. The New York Times ran the story today on their front page: "Dolan Chosen as President of U.S. Bishops’ Group". The piece touches upon Dolan's role in investigating allegations of abuse in Ireland as well as this new role, noting:
"In New York, he has a full plate of challenges, including a budget-cutting effort that will close dozens of churches and parishes."
The news story is accompanied by a profile, "Prelate, Crowd-Pleaser and Defender of the Faith"
