O'Malley, the 'cappuccino priest,' a hit in Rome


Despite all the attention, Donilon said Tuesday the cardinal “expects to be going home.”

Speaking last week at the North American College, the prominent seminary for American priests in Rome, O’Malley played down his prospects, pointing to his brown robe.

“I’ve worn this uniform for over 40 years and I presume I will wear it until I die,” he said, “Because I don’t expect to be elected pope, so I don’t expect to have a change of wardrobe.”
