(KTVI) – Cardinal Dolan’s name came up repeatedly as a possible contender to head the church.  After the conclave, he had a message for reporters.  And some stories to tell about the new Pope Francis.

"I'd like to say this especially to the New York press, I told you so. So I never took that seriously."

"You get to know the new pope as a brother cardinal as we have for a long time. But all of a sudden the identity is different. His name is different, his clothes is different our relationship with him, so the same man that morning you may have been walking with your hand around his arm all of a sudden you're going back to kiss his ring and embrace him."

Cardinal Dolan isn't allowed to talk about the closed door meetings inside the Sistine Chapel.
