Card. Dolan talks about how to bring the New Evangelization to the U.S.

2012-10-18

CARD. TIMOTHY DOLAN
Archbishop of New York (USA)
"Rather than fractioning, perhaps what best we can do is emphasize, we say the Universal call to Holiness for the Second Vatican Council, to emphasize the universal call to evangelization. That is a charge to which no one can escape, if one takes their discipleship and the Catholic faith seriously.”

One of the main points of the new evangelization is to put God back in people's lives and in society. The Cardinal notes that religion in the United States is deeply rooted. 

CARD. TIMOTHY DOLAN
Archbishop of New York
"Society itself still may have this transcendental directive that we are not ready to give it up on. We are realistic and it's threatened but we are not ready to give up on it.”

When it comes to specifics, Cardinal Dolan proposes the Sacrament of Confession and that priests give direct homilies, since for many people Sunday Mass is the only time they hear about God.

Archbishop of New York
"They need to be short, the need to be on point.  They need to be delivered as if one believes in it,  not as if one is reading it. And you'll heard some very good things.”

Cardinal Timothy Dolan was named Archbishop of New York in 2009.  A year later, he was named president of the U.S Conference of Catholic Bishops.
