Congratulations Cardinal John Dew

The decision by Pope Francis to elevate John Dew to the position of Cardinal within the Catholic Church is a good one. mrspdm and I are not Catholics but John Dew is a long time friend even though it is some years since we have seen him and a good man who is well deserving of his new status. He will do New Zealand and the Catholic Church proud.

So will his 0600 mass be Morning Dew?

PDM ... Happy to endorse your comments. The Vet and Mrs Vet are not RC but recognize his elevation is a signal honor both for him and the NZL Catholic community.

It's easy pickings to focus on the few 'embarrassments' that inhabit each and every church denomination. The better story is the 99% who walk the walk according to the tenants of their faith. Clearly Cardinal elect Dew is a stand-out representative of those good folk.
