Dear Archbishop Dolan:
Please accept my heartfelt congratulations on your recent selection as President of the US Catholic Conference of Bishops. I just read about this in the news, and I am overjoyed!
During your brief tenure in New York, we have been blessed with your great compassion, your approachability, and your clear commitment to the core principles of faith – all shown in your own characteristically cheerful and loving way.
We will certainly miss you if you move to DC, but we know that the nation as a whole will gain as you remain at the forefront carrying the message and the mission of respecting the lives of all of God’s children and strengthening the role of the family.
I will continue to value our friendship, and hope and pray that our friendship will continue to grow forever.
Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz
