I caught Archbishop Dolan’s installation homily. Happy, yes, but one moment of definitive clappy, as +Timothy endured a minute-plus standing-o when he mentioned unborn children.The front row folks, whoever they were, weren’t clapping. But they stood.
Clapping also on the reference ot 9/11.
Clapping too on the final climax of his homily referencing NYC highways as the roads to Emmaus.
He’s an engaging and interesting speaker, but when was the last time you saw and heard clapping at a Mass broadcast on EWTN?
