A couple of weeks ago I saw Cardinal Schönborn, and today I got to meet the Archbishop of New York, Archbishop Dolan! He is Awesome!!!! What a great servant of God! Here he is at Theology on Tap in the city. Thanks to my friend Matt for bring the camera! You're awesome!
He is a great speaker and story teller. He was funny and charming this evening for sure!
Then he shook hands with some of us. I was one of us.
Look how happy he looks. I totally get like a little girl around holy people.
He is showing us his pectoral cross.
We tried take a group shot and he was talking to my awesome friend Danny, in the blue shirt, about his cross.
At attempt number two I was trying to tell him to look at the camera but I am not about to tell an Archbishop what to do! LOL
He then asked Danny if he wanted to switch crosses and put his Pectoral Cross on Danny!!!!
Insane night God is good! He also told this amazing story of St. Peter at his martyrdom:
In 64AD the Roman Emperor, Nero who was one of the cruelest emperors of the all the Caesars, wanted to "clean up" Rome. So he set a fire in the slums of Rome to get rid of the poor people there. Thousands died that night and Nero figured he would blame it on the Christians, kill to birds with one stone. It would get rid of that new religion that is popping up. He put a bounty on the Bishop of Rome, which was St. Peter. St. Peter though he was transformed by Jesus he went back to his old ways... As he was leaving Rome passing through the Ostian Gate, he saw Jesus walking towards Rome. Peter said to Jesus, "My Lord, where are you going?" Or in Latin Quo Vadis? Our Lord answered "I am going to Rome to be crucified again." Peter, upon hearing this, got his courage from the Lord again and went back into Rome.
Archbishop Dolan then said, b
