Milwaukee Archbishop Chosen to Succeed Egan

Published: February 23, 2009

Pope Benedict XVI on Monday named Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan, who has led the archdiocese of Milwaukee for the last seven years, to succeed Cardinal Edward M. Egan as the Roman Catholic archbishop of New York.

Archbishop Dolan, who has a towering frame and a gregarious presence, is orthodox in his theology but more likely to use persuasion than punishment on Catholics who do not share his views. In choosing him, the pope passed over other candidates equally conservative but more confrontational with Catholic priests, parishioners and politicians who question church teaching.

    There’s some conflicting information floating around about Abp. Dolan. The Times, which Fr Z calls “Hell’s Bible,” seems to have conveniently forgotten that Dolan strongly rebuked Biden and Pelosi during the campaign season last year – one of few who did so before the election.
