Cardinal Dolan's genes

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Feb 22, 2012

So now we know where Cardinal Dolan gets his sense of humor. When the newly elevated cardinal introduced his mother to Pope Benedict XVI, the Holy Father gallantly commented that Mrs. Dolan looked too youthful to have a son who is a cardinal. The New York Post takes the story from there:

The cardinal said his mom--showing that a quick wit is a family trait--shot back, “Holy Father, was that an infallible statement?”

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
