Catholic New York – Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan – February 6, 2013 I’ve mentioned to you before how I enjoy a long walk up Madison Avenue, and back down Fifth, early Saturday and Sunday mornings: it’s quiet, no traffic, the air is clean, nobody’s out. Couple weeks ago a homeless man on a bench saw […]

Catholic New York – Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan – December 26, 2013 A blessed Christmas season! Just a warning: I will be driving around the Archdiocese today. If I see one Catholic home, with the Christmas tree taken down already, outside near the trash can, I’m coming in and cursing your New Year! We Catholics […]

Catholic New York – Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan – November 27, 2013 Very interesting… A great episode in the life of Saint Isaac Jogues, one of the North American Martyrs, who labored, and was martyred, in the northern part of our state… Seems as if the early missionaries were not having much success in their […]

October 18, 2013 by  
Filed under O'Meara Ferguson News

Catholic New York – Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan – October 17, 2013 Where we begin in the whole sacred process of evangelization is very important! Pope Francis has radiantly reminded us of this, hasn’t he? It’s not helpful to start with what the Church is against; it’s not productive to begin with what’s right or […]

Catholic New York – By Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan – April 4, 2013 Easter blessings! I’m all for celebrating! We prepared for Easter with forty days of intense prayer, penance, and charity during Lent.

Catholic New York – By Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan – November 29, 2012 One of the highlights of our bishops’ meetings comes at our morning of recollection. It’s rather simple, but we, your bishops, observe that is probably the most effective part of our sessions. We gather before the Most Blessed Sacrament, in adoration before […]

Christ and His Church Are All About Salvation

November 2, 2012 by  
Filed under O'Meara Ferguson News

Catholic New York – By Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan – November 1, 2012 We spent a lot of time at the Synod on the New Evangelization in Rome talking about salvation. On the one hand, I guess this should not shock us, since Jesus came as our Savior, offering us the “good news” of eternal […]

The Church and Accountability

August 9, 2012 by  
Filed under O'Meara Ferguson News

Catholic New York – August 9, 2012 We hear a lot these days about accountability. That’s good. The Church needs to be accountable. For one, and most significantly, we are accountable to God. As the Bible tells us, one day we shall stand before Him in judgment. On that day, no excuses, no rationalizing, no […]
