NEW YORK - Cardinal-designate Timothy Dolan is humbled by his new honor, the former Milwaukee Archbishop told Wisconsin's Afternoon News on Friday.

"It has been a great day.  My voice has had it," Dolan joked. 

"My main sacred responsibility remains to be the Archbishop of New York," the archbishop said.

When asked about the possibility of ever becoming a Pope, Dolan humbly responded, "that is not going to happen."

Despite all the honors and accolades, the archbishop still holds Milwaukee close to his heart.

"I can't tell you how much I miss Milwaukee."
