It was between Archbishop Timothy Dolan and Bishop Gerald Kicanas and just as the winner was to be announced, EWTN lost the feed! A real cliff hanger! But Archbishop Dolan won and so too the Church in the USA!
Just a side bar, when I was vocation director for the Diocese of Savannah, I visited two of our seminarians at the North American College in Rome around 1995 and met with the rector, Monsignor Timothy Dolan. He invited me to his apartment later in the day for a wonderful Italian dinner with some other guests he had invited. Man, can he talk! Everything he says is interesting.
During the meal, though, I thought to myself in premonition form, this man would be a great successor to Cardinal John O'Connor. I just thought this man, Msgr. Dolan was made for New York City. Am I clairvoyant?
