It's Archbishop Timothy Dolan.
Finally, after weeks of rumors and speculation, Pope Benedict XVI has appointed the Milwaukee archbishop to succeed Cardinal Edward Egan as head of the Archdiocese of New York. The announcement came this morning, although Archbishop Dolan's name came as no surprise. News of his imminent appointment had been swirling around both the Catholic and secular press for some time now.
Archbishop Dolan, 59, is expected to celebrate 8 a.m. Mass with Cardinal Egan at St. Patrick's Cathedral before heading to a press conference later in the morning. Cardinal Egan, who turned 75 in April 2007, is the first Archbishop of New York to retire from his post; all others have died while serving.
