Daniel Cardinal DiNardo, former Bishop of the Sioux City Diocese, was one of the 115 Cardinals who voted in the Papal Conclave on Wednesday
One of the 115 cardinals who voted in the papal conclave at the Sistine Chapel is former Sioux City Bishop Daniel DiNardo. He is now the Archbishop of Galveston-Houston.
DiNardo issued this statement Thursday morning:
"I rejoice with all the Catholics of the world in the election of Pope Francis. His life as a disciple of Jesus Christ and his service as a Jesuit priest and as Archbishop of the local Church of Buenos Aires have prepared him for his universal pastoral service as successor of St. Peter.
His great sense of humility, his eloquent preaching of the Faith, and his life of simplicity and dedication to the poor already mark him as a fitting Bishop of Rome and Pope of the Universal Church."
DiNardo also said that he felt very privileged to participate in the conclave. He called it a humbling and enriching experience.
