Welcome to New York, Father Timmy D!


Wisconsin Pride in New York? I dig it.

I wouldn’t say I’m the most devout Catholic.  I did actually give up chocolate for Lent this year but, I mean, I haven’t even been to church since I was confirmed in high school.  However, with the arrival of Archbishop Timothy Dolan from Milwaukee as the new leader and high priest of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York, I might go to mass, especially if he keeps up the funny, as reported by the New York Times:

“Go away, Lord! I’m not your man,” he said in recounting an inner dialogue with God. “My Spanish is lousy and my English not much better. I’m still angry at New York for taking Favre and Sabathia from us in Wisconsin. The Yankees and Mets over the Cardinals and Brewers? Forget it!” he said. It was the first homily at St. Patrick’s in recent memory that was punctuated with exclamation marks in the official transcript.

Ohh Dolan, you slay me.  You’re just what the Catholic Church needs.  May the Lord be with you (and also with you).
