CARD. TIMOTHY DOLAN
Archbishop of New York

 "It has given me some humility. I can't let this go to my head. I can't let my head get as puffed up as my tummy. I have to remind myself 'I'm a sinner, I constantly have to improve my life.'”

Known for being a charismatic Cardinal and a big sports fan, the 63 year old is also the President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. As a child, it's said he would pretend to celebrate Mass.

In 2012, Time Magazine listed him as one of "100 Most Influential People in the World.”

From 2002 to 2009, Dolan was the Archbishop of Milwaukee. Before that he was the Auxiliary Bishop in St. Louis. He also lived several years in Italy. From 1994 to 2001, he was the rector of the Pontifical North American College in Rome, where American seminarians are prepared for the priesthood.
