BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- Cardinal Timothy Dolan will speak at Bronxville's Concordia College on Monday, June 2 at 7 p.m. as part of the 2014 Jacobson Global Lecture.
Dolan is the Archbishop of New York, former President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, a member of the College of Cardinals and author of the recently published Praying in "Rome: Reflections on the Conclave and Electing Pope Francis."
Named one of Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World," Dolan has been recognized for many of the same qualities he has said he admires in Pope Francis: sincere, down-to-earth, and focused on the timeless teaching of the Bible, judging actions not people.
“Pope Francis has captured the world’s imagination by shining the light on the Church’s compassionate persona rather than the punitive, and generated considerable interest in re-examining the role of faith in the public square,” Dr. Viji George, President of Concordia College said in a statement. “As the leading voice representing the Catholic Church in America, Cardinal Dolan is eminently qualified and adept at articulating this vision.”
