(The Boston church) has been through a lot. This is yet another turning point with the archbishop coming in, and now the elevation to cardinal is, I think, another blessing from the pope, and he has his eyes on Boston.

It is a surprise to the bishop; it was a surprise to us and we would like to celebrate it with him.

This is just monumental and historic and huge in some regards. And we're in Lent right now, so that makes it extra special.

This is not just the Pope's blessing. He's giving the blessing for God.
