Dolan not only said many gracious things about the first Latin-American Pope, but also voted for the chemist-turned spiritual Pontiff.
The election and the choosing of the Pope was “all gravy,” said Cardinal Dolan. Dolan continued on to say that even the Pope behaved “all gravy” about the grand promotion.
Dolan added that the new Pope is a “theological conversant,” “a good pasture of governance,” and a “good man,” when speaking with ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
The new Pope whose birth name is, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, is the 266th Pope of the Catholic Church, and was chosen Wednesday by his fellow Cardinals to lead the Catholic Church after Pope Benedict XVI retired.
Pope Francis, who many say is a “modest” and “charismatic” human being, is the first Latin-American and first Jesuit Pontiff.
The new Pope, who was also described as being shy, used to sit in the back row at Cardinal and Church gatherings.
Pope Francis is also remarkably modest, and has a lot of compassion for the poor.
As for Cardinal Timothy Dolan, who prior to the election of Pope Francis was rumored of possibly becoming the next Pope said, he will miss being in New York for the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day parade.
The St. Patrick’s Day parade usually takes place and passes by in front of his Cathedral.
