I this man a Cardinal of the RC church? I thought the only new American Cardinal was Archbishop Timothy Dolan of NYC.
Both were elevated to Cardinal in February. O’Brien’s job prior to becoming Bishop of Baltimore was to basically tour and evaluate different archdioceses. After his completion he was appointed Bishop of Baltimore. (Kinda says something about what was going on there prior). Lots of “retirements” and “reassignments” followed. He is the real deal and, with Dolan, will give more of a voice to the conservatives in the Church.
