Live from Town Hall

Last night, The Catholic Channel (SiriusXM channel 129) aired a special two-hour live broadcast event called, “SiriusXM’s Town Hall with Cardinal Dolan.” I sat with 20 listeners for a Q&A session and discussed topics like how my life has changed since I’ve become a cardinal, favorite flavor of gelato, and what events have influenced me the most in my priesthood. It was a special treat to have Matt Lauer of the Today Show stop by and to have baseball great Joe Torre and my mom call in.

Answering questions from listeners

I also launched my new Twitter account, which I am really excited about. You can follow my tweets @CardinalDolan.

For those of you who missed it, you can tune in to the show on Sirius XM 129 during one the replays – Saturday, May 12 (10:00 am ET & 7:00 pm ET) and Sunday, May 13 (12:00 pm ET & 10:00 pm ET).

    Your Eminence: I mean no disrespect. I appreciate this fun piece; however, I must ask: why is Cardinal Wuerl silent on Sebelius speaking at Georgetown. How can the laity be expected to support our Shephers when they behave like wolves?

    It was a great show. Plenty of laughs, insights, and inspiration. God bless all who were involved. I hope you can do more of this in the future.

    Cardinal Dolan,

    Please step up to your leadership responsibility and address the recent admission on the part of Daniel Donohue that he lied in regards to his claims against Msgr. Charles Kavanagh.

    I was a student at Cathedral Prep, a friend of Daniel Donohue’s, and have know Msgr Kavanagh my entire life. I testified at the trial in Erie, PA and what I testified to was having serious doubts about Daniel Donohue’s credibility. I was dismissed then and I am amazed that the Archdiocese is remaining passive in terms of this case.

    You are a good man. Please do what is right.
