For O'Brien, Another Honor

7 JANUARY 2012. THE VATICAN. The announcement of a slate of 22 new cardinals by Pope Benedict XVI yesterday, including Archbishop Timothy Dolan, also includes another name familiar to those of us in the United States.

A tip of the red hat has also been given to Archbishop Edwin O'Brien, who served as the Archbishop of Baltimore until his appointment as pro-grand master of the Equestrian Order of the Knights of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem on 29 August 2011. Since that appointment to the Roman station, Archbishop O'Brien has also been serving--and splitting time between the Eternal City and the U.S.--as the Apostolic Administrator of the Archdiocese of Baltimore.

Congratulations to Archbishop O'Brien! Our prayers go with you in all your service to the Church.
