As you most likely know by now, Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York (and formerly of Milwaukee) will be elevated to cardinal at the Vatican in February a move that gives him a say in the election of the next pope.

Veteran Vatican reporter John Allen, who has authored a new book with Dolan, offers five observations on the 22 new cardinals named today. Among them, that Pope Benedict XVI broke with tradition in appointing Dolan so soon a sign that the pope thinks highly of the popular American prelate.

The Journal Sentinel posted the announcement on Dolan's appointment early today at JSonline.com, including a link to this photo gallery.
