Cardinal Timothy Dolan makes the Time Magazine Top 100 Influential People in the World List

So excited to see this!

Our very own Cardinal Timothy Dolan is one of the most influential people in the world!

Love his welcoming embrace and smile.

He's freaking awesome!

I love the description they posted about him, it is so true:

"Yet in 2012, this priest with a mien dating back half a century did something few other American Roman Catholic leaders have managed in recent times: he put himself and his church back in the center of the national political conversation, a public square long dominated by Protestant evangelicals. 

In leading the opposition to a proposed Obama Administration rule that would have required Catholic organizations like hospitals to pay for contraceptive services for female employees, Dolan successfully argued that such a policy violated the nation's principles of religious liberty."
