Archbishop to Blessed Mother

By | May 4, 2009


Personally, I’ve been fortunate when it comes to spring allergies – just itchy eyes, a few sneezes.  Others in my family are less fortunate, so I can sympathize with those in our area who may look askance as the newly blooming flowers. Take heart, you have friends in high places.

Yesterday (May 3), Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York admitted that he has spring allergies. Speaking to religion reporter, Gary Stern of the Westchester Journal-News ( in suburban New York, the archbishop revealed he has had allergies all his life. "The two months of May and October I always found the worst," he said. "And those, on the Catholic calendar, are dedicated to the Blessed Mother. I would say to her ‘What are you trying to do to me?’ "
