Gov. Cuomo: It's Timothy Cardinal Dolan Week in New York
The downtown skyline is glowing red this week in honor of newly minted Cardinal Timothy Dolan.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo designated this week "Timothy Cardinal Dolan Week," less than a month after Dolan was elevated from Archbishop by Pope Benedict XVI.
"Cardinal Dolan has quickly become a beloved leader in our state," Cuomo said in a statement Monday. "It is clear that he will continue to have a tremendous impact on the next generation of Catholicism in New York and throughout the United States."
A spokeswoman for the Archdiocese of New York said Dolan, who was visiting politicians in Albany, did not have a comment on the proclamation Monday.
One World Trade Center will be lit red through Sunday night.
