 "We have to draw people into the Church so that they will see the beauty that is there, and discover how much the Lord loves them and wants them to be a part of their lives, calling them to be part of his family, the Church.”

In 2003, Cardinal O'Malley was appointed archbishop of Boston. Three years later, Benedict XVI created him cardinal. Today, he is very active on Twitter and online, he was the first Cardinal with his own personal blog.

"Part of our task is going to be how to communicate to a world that has become increasingly more secular.”

Perhaps his toughest challenge to date was taking over in Boston at the height of the child sex abuse scandal. To compensate the victims, Cardinal O'Malley sold off the diocese's episcopal palace and moved to a small apartment inside a monastery. In addition to English, he's also fluent in Spanish, Italian and Portuguese.
