Moments ago Pope Benedict XVI named 22 new cardinals, including Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York, president of the United Conference of Catholic Bishops; Archbishop Edwin O'Brien, former Archbishop of Baltimore and current pro-grand master of the Equestrian Order (Knights) of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, based in Rome; and Archbishop Thomas Collins of Toronto.
During the announcement, the pope asked people to "pray for those newly nominated."
