October 25, 2020
Daniel Cardinal DiNardo of Galveston-Houston issued a statement following the naming of Archbishop Wilton D. Gregory of Washington to the College of Cardinals by Pope Francis today.
Cardinal DiNardo's full statement follows:
“I am delighted that Pope Francis has named Archbishop Wilton Gregory of Washington to the College of Cardinals. Archbishop Gregory has given his life to the Church as a holy priest and bishop. Having served as president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Archbishop Gregory has shown leadership among the bishops of the United States. I pray for God’s blessings upon the Church in Washington, D.C., as Archbishop Gregory soon becomes a close collaborator with Pope Francis in the College of Cardinals.”
