I couldn't resist....

Archbishop Timothy Dolan leads a procession following a mass at the Missionaries of Charity home in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. With support from Catholic Relief Services, the home serves more than 1,000 children and adults who are orphaned or ill. Photo by Jim Stipe/CRS.

A few of my favorite things, together:

Go see this, a bit on another side to this man: a man with a heart for the needy, for orphans, for the poor. And even for Ethiopia. He's been chairman of board of Catholic Relief Services since 2007. No wonder he's got a joyful heart!

What's not to like? A holy faithful man, a new Archbishop, and his trips to Ethiopia and Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity - one of their home for orphans, and Catholic Relief Services..... Let's count: that's three, or four, no, five (?) of my favorite topics, all in one picture. Now, that's a photo op, in my book!

Jim has been waiting for them to formally announce this. We are very excited. Now, if we can get an equally holy man as our new Bishop here in the Syracuse dio. I'll be thrilled.

Hope you guys had a good weekend.

I'm so grateful for your very kind and loving post. You strike me as the type of woman that I'd want in my lifeboat, that's for sure.

I've been following your blog for a while now. Lady, you raise good humans! And you know how to think and linger on the hard stuff! And you love coffee! When I grow up I want to be like Coffee Mom.

I think I would get along very well with that Archbishop :).

Hey there - this is Jen Hardy from CRS, and I just have to agree, I love this photo! All the snippets about the Dolan appointment I've overheard here at the office are full of warm wishes and appreciation for his care for the poor. Thanks for sharing the pic!
