I find it hard to believe that Cardinal Dolan speaks only English. He was stationed in Rome for many years when he headed the North American College there.

Besides, his personal warmth crosses all language barriers.

Cdl Dolan speaks what he himself refers to as “primordial” Italian (in other words, very primitive and not very fluent). I’m getting to like him better, but I’m not sure that he’d be firm enough. I think he was much too good-natured in dealing with Obama and inviting him to the Al Smith dinner, but since he wrote a letter apologizing to the diocese for perhaps having given scandal, maybe he learned from that.
