    Thanks for the AOL Ash Wednesday piece today. What a great way to start the day and the lenten season. I especially liked the upbeat nature of your message and presentation not to mention the ecumenical references to the season. This is the kind of upbeat and positive face we Catholics need. Thanks.

    How refreshing it was to see such a bright spot on the internet among reports of world troubles or the latest exploits of Hollywood’s misfits. Your positive message, and engaging smile reminds all of us how joyful we should all be – blessed with the gift of our faith. I agree with the prior post (Joe Hickey) that this type of presentation is truly inspirational. Well done to you and all those that made it happen. Another home run !!

    Spring training. Great analogy. I also liked the part about it taking 40 days to prepare for our high holy days. You certainly have a gift Your Excellency. My daily Rosaries seem to be paying off. All is not lost in this great Archdiocese. AndyP/Doria2 HOSEA 4:6

    The sad part is I was just watching espan2 and saw Senator Mikulski with a smudge
    of ashes on her forehead say’ in response to a prior pro life Senator who was
    advocating shutting off Govt spending for abortion funding for “Planned Parenthood”,
    that she “is for respect for life after your born” and since she respects other views they should respect hers. You should be able to see this on the espan2 archive
    for today on the speeches before the HR1 vote, about 2:20PM. Maybe Lent
    should be longer.

    Thank you Archbishop! That was great- and good quality cinematography- you should do a hundred of those! (in all your spare time…)

    I’m reading about the new clergy scandal in Philadelphia. Despite the Dallas protocols, there were almost 40 priests who had credible allegations of abuse still in active ministry. Is there some way I can check to make sure there are no priests with abuse complaints in my parish in the Bronx? I have children in the parish school.

  8. It’s so good to see a Bishop utilize the new media tools in such a wonderful way. God Bless you!

    I found your video via Bisho Coyne’s blog. Well done! You did a great job speaking plain and simple. Love that you have an RSS feed too! Well done Archbishop Dolan! Consider yourself bookmarked (favorites!)! :-) Looking forward to hearing more from you via our new media! Thanks again to Bishop Coyne for the heads up on your site/postings.

    Dolan is OK…sometimes.

    He’s in a position to help others with weight problems to live healthier lives and what does he do to help others find a healthy balance? NADA! He’s quick to shift the focus away from obesity.

    If you want to help save the lives of good Catholics who are obese, then talk about it, unite your Catholic communities in NY so that you all have a chance to live healthier lives. Promote healthier living by example!
