Rocco Palmo: Archbishop Dolan to NY

Rocco keeps insisting it's going to be Milwaukee's Archbishop to be the next Archbishop of NY. Here's more from him and other Vatican insiders here.

I have not met Archbishop Dolan but inside sources place well within the chancery office there tell me the following:

"He's a very nice man. Funny, down-to-earth, great with the media. Has a good respect for the laity and knows that he needs good administrative people around him. He's a traditional guy but is less traditional than some people make him out to be. He makes a decision and sticks to it."

My only experience of him was when I watched a recording of him addressing the media when he first got the gig in Milwaukee. He had replaced Archbishop Rembert Weakland who was a rather slender man. When a reporter asked him what the main difference between Archbishop Weakland and himself would be, Archbishop Dolan replied:

"Um, I'd say about 100-120 pounds!"

He'll be good here. Looking forward to it.
