Timothy Cardinal Dolan to headline pro-life Mass marking Roe v. Wade

Cardinal Dolan

Timothy Cardinal Dolan, archbishop of New York, will be the main celebrant at a Mass in New York City marking the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. The Mass service will take place at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, located at 5th Avenue and 50th Street, at 7am.

    God is the actual headliner and the cardinal is only God’s servant.
    Sic transit gloria mundi.

      Great point, Charles, as I’m sure the cardinal would agree. The “headliner” at each and every Catholic Mass is Jesus Christ, and Jesus Christ alone. He’s the High Priest offering the Mass and He’s present in the Eucharist. The human priest is the secondary celebrant. The centerpiece of Catholic worship is NEVER the preacher. That can’t be stated enough. There’s not alot of wisdom that I can see in creating a cult of personality around priests or in cultivating adulation around them, no matter how faithful they are (or appear to be).

  • I’ll be there!

    people truly have no soul! Bans guns that protect lawful citizens from
    facists like them, yet push late term abortions that murder babies that
    could survive outside the womb and call it a ‘right’. How pathetic,
    sick and depraved they are. They are not human and they have no souls.

    “Late-Abortion Green Light”-Cuomo’s bill removes
    criminal penalties for third-trimester abortions after 24 weeks by
    adding a broad health exception. Current state law allows such late-term
    abortions if there is a danger to the mother’s life.

    Slattery, director of the Expectant Mother Care (EMC) pregnancy centers
    in New York City, said the new law will make New York City the late-term
    abortion capital of the world.

    “It’s going to open up the third-trimester market,” Slattery said.
    “It’s going to be huge, and people all over the world, not just out of
    state, are going to be coming to New York to have and perform these

    Late-term abortions generally cost more than $2,000.

    “It’s the fight of the pro-life movement’s life in New York,” Slattery
    said. “This is worse than Roe v. Wade itself, and everyone needs to
    focus on defeating this bill.”
