VATICAN CITY (KSDK) - We're hearing from Cardinal Timothy Dolan for the first time since Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio was elected pope.

Cardinal Dolan says he did not know Pope Francis well before the conclave this week, but he says the beauty of the experience is that he does now.

"You heard him he kind of comes across as shy and reserved doesn't he? His voice is kind of conversational. He doesn't have a real booming voice, but he's a man of confidence and poise and but that's blended with a beautiful sincerity and simplicity and humility," said Cardinal Dolan.
