WELL, THIS IS INTERESTING ABOUT A COUPLE OF CARDINALS-ELECT THAT POPE FRANCIS HAS CHOSEN


I re-post this from an "anonymous" comment on another post--can anyone verify?

However the praytellers want to spin this, the fact is that Francis has given Ladaria a vote in the next conclave and the cardinals will likely be much more careful about how they choose the next time around. Also, of the new batch of cardinals, the cardinal elect from l'Aquila is a Burke supporter (he hosted an event honoring Burke a few months ago, and has attended an EF Mass in choir alongside Burke), also the new Cardinal from Madagascar was a signatory to the filial appeal made to Pope Francis before the last synod asking him to hold the line on communion for divorced and remarried people.

I posted the comment about the new Cardinals. Ladarius, of course, has the full confidence of Mueller and Benedict. Here are links about Cardinal-elect Giuseppe Petrocchi:

I don't recall if you can read Italian, I would be happy to translate anything you want.

And here's for Cardinal-elect Desire Tsarahazana :

Who determined that the Cardinals had not chosen carefully the last time around?
