N.Y. Archbsp. Dolan defends pope: Remarks at Palm Sunday Mass

Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of New York, made the following remarks at the conclusion of Palm Sunday Mass in Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in New York on Sunday, March 28, 2010. “May I ask your patience a couple of minutes longer in what has already been a lengthy – yet hopefully uplifting -Sunday Mass? The somberness of Holy Week is intensified for Catholics this year. The recent tidal wave of headlines about abuse of minors by some few priests, this time in Ireland, Germany, and a re-run of an old story from Wisconsin, has knocked us to our knees once again.”
