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
