FILE - In this Monday, Feb. 11, 2013 file photo, New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan speaks to the press in his residence. Dolan said he was as startled as the rest of the world about Pope Benedict XVI's announcement that he will resign later this month due to failing health. Popes are also expected to be multilingual, or to at minimum speak Italian fluently. Dolan, considered to have one of the highest profiles in the U.S. church, speaks only halting Italian and a little Spanish, but no French or Latin. He led the North American Seminary in Rome, a kind of West Point for American priests, but has never worked in a Vatican office. (AP Photo/Mark Lennihan)
