Congratulations, Archbishop DiNardo

Congratulations, Archbishop DiNardo October 17, 2007

Katerina and I just found out that our own archbishop, Daniel DiNardo, was named a Cardinal by Pope Benedict XVI.  This is wonderful news for the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, which was just raised to the status of Metropolitan Archdiocese by Pope John Paul II in 2004.  Archbishop DiNardo is the first cardinal to be named from a Texas diocese, so we are thrilled at this historic news.

I have met and chatted with Archbishop DiNardo on a number of occasions.  We are both from Pittsburgh, so when I see him, we exchange our thoughts on how the Steelers are playing.  DiNardo is a man who drinks deeply of the Word of God, and the couple of times we have had an exchange on Scripture have left me in awe.  Truly a worthy choice for the College of Cardinals.

  • Legion of Mary,

    I don’t know if he is or not, but he will be very generous with the Summorum Pontificum. He is a strong Catholic, ie, orthodox. His positions from the liturgy to social justice seem thus far to follow Church doctrine.

    Deo gratias!

    At the Fullness of Truth this past June, Archbishop DiNardo would not allow Latin in the NO Mass he celebrated.
