That Beechey touch.

Dedicated followers of this blog may remember this picture from Christmas 2010. That's me and Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York. (In case it isn't clear, the Archbishop is the one on the right.)

Now, just a year later, it's been announced that Archbishop Dolan is shortly to be made a Cardinal.

Just a year. A year after a moment or two with his arm around my shoulder.

I'm just saying . . .


  1. So, we should all stalk you and hug you?

  2. Well, maybe, but there's the risk it might make you celibate.

  3. No worries. I'd have to have a sex life to lose one.

  4. On the other hand, you could probably fix that by becoming a cardinal.
