Cardinal O'Brien's elevation ceremony
I am proud to be a part of the Archdiocese of Baltimore. This past weekend marked the fourth shepherd of the Archdiocese of Baltimore to join the College of Cardinals.
I traveled to Rome to be a part of this special time, and throughout the weekend I was thrilled to have the opportunity to meet many more supporters of Cardinal O'Brien.
My time in Rome was to express to him how honored I was for his support throughout the years and that I will continue to support his work.
Cardinal O'Brien was recorded saying, "I am grateful and I will put my whole heart into the work in support of the church, by the grace of God, and he [Pope Benedict XVI] told me I would receive the graces."
God Bless Cardinal O'Brien.
