Happy beyond words. Thanks be to GOD!
At last! Te Deum laudamus!
Nice! May God bless the new Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church.
The return of the silver trumpeters to the papal ceremonies is also appreciated.
Cardinals Burke and Ranjith are indeed favorites, Father. But in that category we must not forget to give thanks also for the elevation of good Cardinal Bartolucci.
I will sleep better tonight knowing that Raymond Cardinal Burke and Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith will be in the next Conclave and may it be MANY YEARS in the future and may they live many years too!
… and Velasio Cardinal de Paolis ordered deacons (Franciscans of the Immaculate) according to the Extraordinary Form just a few weeks ago. Deo gratias!
Cardinal Burke….a day to rejoice…a blessing to the Church.
Ahh, Cardina Ranjith. Amazing that he wrote a laudatory introduction to this (Vatican Council II; a Much Needed Discussion) polemical (if not incendiary) work! Cardinal Burke, too, is very friendly to trads. So, I agree Fr. Z, two fine choices indeed!

May Our Dear Virgin Mother watch over these good cardinals and bless them with more wisdom.
Two very fine men, indeed. Deo Gratias!
Te Deum Laudamus for the new Princes of the Church….especially these two, Cardinal Burke [isn’t that cool to ‘finally’ say that?] and Cardinal Ranjith!
I can see a nice smile on the Holy Father’s face in the second photo!
That sucker made me cry like no tomorrow. Especially when Cardinal Bartolucci made it up the stairs with some help from a deacon, but also when the Pope gave the red hat to the current Archbishop of Munich and Freising, and when they showed a pope’s eye view of the Tomb hole.
Cardinal Wuerl looked very happy and pleased, but it worries me that he got the original St. Peter in Chains as his titular church. I mean, it’s sort of like getting a warning from the pope to expect trouble, or at least it’s the sort of titular church to make you think hard about life. Maybe it’s an encouragement to be brave.
Cardinal Wuerl’s titular church is the same one as Leo Cardinal Suenens. Interesting.
