Cardinal Dolan “Startled” by Pope Benedict XVI’s Resignation Today

The Archbishop of New York, Cardinal Dolan, was startled today to hear the news that Pope Benedict XVI was resigning.
Cardinal Dolan spoke to FOX News this morning.

Cardinal Dolan released this official statement.

“We are sad that he will be resigning but grateful for his eight years of selfless leadership as successor of St. Peter. He delighted our beloved United States of America when he visited Washington and New York in 2008. As a favored statesman he greeted notables at the White House. As a spiritual leader he led the Catholic community in prayer at Nationals Park, Yankee Stadium and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. As a pastor feeling pain in a stirring, private meeting at the Vatican nunciature in Washington, he brought a listening heart to victims of sexual abuse by clerics.”
