NO NEGATIVE BOMBSHELLS IN THESE NEW CARDINALS, THE ONES I KNOW OF NO MAJOR RED FLAGS AND THE OTHERS FROM SOME PLACES I HAVE NEVER HEARD WHO KNOWS AND NOTHING FOR THE MOST UNHEARD OF PLACE RICHMOND HILL!

To be honest with you I really like His Excellency Konrad Krajewski – Almoner of the Office of Papal Charities, who was a major MC with Msgr. Guido Marini and of his liturgical ilk. He cried standing next to Pope Benedict when The pope beatified Pope John Paul II. In fact I would like to see Konrad as the next Polish pope!

The men who will receive their red hats from the Pope include bishops from Iraq, Pakistan, Portugal, Peru, Madagascar, Italy and Japan.
The list also includes Polish archbishop Konrad Krajewski, who serves as the papal almoner here in Rome, and three Italian archbishops, Angelo De Donatis, the vicar general of the Rome diocese, Luis Ladaria, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and Giovanni Becciu, the Substitute of the Secretary of State and Special Delegate for the Sovereign Military Order of Malta. Pope Francis said their nominations “manifests the unbreakable bond between the See of Peter and the local Churches throughout the world”.
Alongside them, Pope Francis also nominated to the College of Cardinals a retired archbishop of Mexico, a retired bishop of Bolivia and a priest from the Claretian order, all of whom, he said, “have distinguised themselves for their service to the Church”.
The names of the new Cardinals are:
His Beatitude Louis Raphaël I Sako – Chaldean Catholic Patriarch of Babylon
His Excellency Luis Ladaria –Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith
His Excellency Angelo De Donatis – Vicar General of Rome
His Excellency Giovanni Angelo Becciu – Substitute of the Secretary of State and Special Delegate for the Sovereign Military Order of Malta
His Excellency Konrad Krajewski – Almoner of the Office of Papal Charities
His Excellency Joseph Coutts – Archbishop of Karachi
His Excellency António dos Santos Marto – Bishop of Leiria-Fátima
His Excellency Pedro Barreto – Archbishop of Huancayo
His Excellency Desiré Tsarahazana – Archbishop of Toamasina
His Excellency Giuseppe Petrocchi – Archbishop of L’Aquila
His Excellency Thomas Aquinas Manyo – Archbishop of Osaka
His Excellency Sergio Obeso Rivera – Emeritus Archbishop of Xalapa.
His Excellency Toribio Ticona Porco – Emeritus Bishop of Corocoro.
Reverend Father Aquilino Bocos Merino – member of the Claretian order.

In the abstract, I rather like the idea of having some representation for lesser known sees and countries in the College of Cardinals. I do worry, though, that he’s packing the College with a bunch of lefty heretics to elect a successor in his image or worse. How about an auxiliary bishop of Astana in Kazakhstan for a red hat? One can’t get more peripheral than that!

The Archbishop of Philadelphia is normally a Cardinal's See. Looks like it only merits a Cardinal's hat if it's not Chaput. Gee, I wonder why?

Can I hear an AMEN!

Because it is the usual practice of the Holy See not to name a second cardinal from an archdiocese as long as the emeritus cardinal is living.

But speaking of Philly was Rigalli named cardinal while Bevalaqua was still living and in Philly? At least now Rigali lives in Knoxville Henry’s domicile.

Yes, Rigali was created cardinal while Bevilaqua was living. But the circumstances, with Bevilaqua's cancer and dementia, most likely influenced the decision of the Holy See.

More accurately, the Holy See traditionally does not desire two VOTING cardinals from the same diocese. When the emeritus is over 80 and no longer eligible to vote in a conclave, another from that diocese may be named.

There's all the difference between a reason and an excuse.

"More accurately, the Holy See traditionally does not desire two VOTING cardinals from the same diocese. When the emeritus is over 80 and no longer eligible to vote in a conclave, another from that diocese may be named."

Neither the reason nor the excuse. Because Card. Rigali is now 83, so Ab. Chaput has been eligible, if not over ripe, for a red hat for 2 or 3 years. Incidentally, Philly's loss is certainly Knoxville's; his residence here has been a real blessing for our diocese. (And he celebrated his first solemn pontifical TLM at the age of 80, if I recall correctly. And is said to be very friendly to our TLM priests)

Archbishop Chaput is too orthodox to be made a cardinal by PF

Henry - DO you have anything - other than your surmise - to indicate that Chaput is being skipped over because he is orthodox?

Anonymous,

Henry is making an educated guess just like I am based on what we see happening. The facts are depressing. We have a left-wing loon unorthodox Archbishop in Chicago appointed by PF who gets a red hat. Capice?

Only enough common sense to walk around by myself, at least in broad daylight. Not that I'm any great fan of Ab. Chaput--who's reportedly no fan of my kind of liturgy--but he's clearly an orthodox believing Catholic, which distinguishes him from many high appointees in the Church today.
