    Archbishop Timothy Dolan

    Archdiocese of New York

    1011 First Avenue

    New York, New York 10022

    Dear Archbishop Dolan:

    On this Feast of the Three Kings, I join with New Yorkers to celebrate the news that you have been selected to serve as a Cardinal in the Catholic Church.

    I heard you say in a television interview that you are “honored and humbled” by this inspired choice of Pope Benedict XVI and as one who considers you a friend, I would like you to know that New York is blessed by this choice.

    In the great spirit of interfaith unity, I look forward to your years of leadership in New York and I will continue to keep you in my prayers.

    May the Lord continue to bless you as you continue to serve His people.


    Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz

    32nd District
