The list is out.
I was pleased to see that one of my profs from the Augustinianum was on the list, though he is over 80, Prosper Grech, OSA. Trappé never had the red hat.
I was sad that good old Archbp. Luigi De Magistris was not included. It is a heavy burden.
No, Archbishop Chaput wasn’t named, but there are two living Cardinal Archbishops of Philadelphia, one of whom can still vote. Archbishop Nichols of Westminster will remain without the red hat for a while longer, for his predecessor is still of voting age. Archbishop Dolan is president of the conference and his predecessor is just a few months from turning 80.
Lot’s of Italians, which I don’t think is a great move.
Pray for the new Cardinals.
