Archbishop Dolan on elevation to cardinal

Sunday, January 08, 2012

New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan held his first Sunday Mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral since being elevated to cardinal.

His big promotion on Friday left him in high spirits, but he said it's also left him with a touch of laryngitis from talking too much.

Archbishop Timothy Dolan says New Yorkers have been congratulating him all weekend.

"This sanitation truck drove by, from the city, and all of the sudden they stopped and the two fellows, the two garbage collectors got out and they say 'Are you the new Cardinal?' and I said yes and they both came up to me and congratulated me and said 'We're happy for you'," Dolan said.

Dolan's official elevation to cardinal will come in a ceremony at the Vatican on February 18th.
