CARDINAL DOLAN’S STATEMENT ON FORMER GOVERNOR MARIO CUOMO
The following is statement from Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York, on the passing of former Governor Mario Cuomo:
"Although he was Governor of New York long before I arrived here as archbishop, I had the pleasure of meeting and corresponding with Mario Cuomo on numerous occasions, and always found him to be a keen observer of the issues facing our city, state, and country. He was always ready to share his insights about the state of the Church as well, and it was obvious to me that he was intensely proud of his Catholic faith. My prayerful condolences go out to his loving wife, Matilda and the family. We thank them for sharing their husband and father with the city, state, and nation, and we praise God for the 82 years we had him."
