ROME - Pope Francis announced Sunday that he will create 14 new cardinals in June coming from all over the world, including Iraq, Portugal, Italy, Poland, Peru, Japan, Madagascar, and several Vatican officials.
Eleven of those new cardinals are under 80, meaning they’re eligible to participate in an eventual conclave to choose Francis’s successor. The consistory, meaning the ceremony for the creation of new cardinals, will take place in Rome on June 29, the feast of Saints Peter and Paul.

Bergoglio's stacking the deck and stacking it deep.
I went to mass today and all I could think about was this issue with the German bishops trying to make the Eucharist essentially a meaningless symbol that anyone can share because their feelings are more important than the sacrament. And how the Pope is playing a game of lettIng them do it by pretendIng not to have a position. And I was thinking if the Eucharist is not worthy of being protected, if its not our holiest sacrament, then everything this church has told me has been a lie. In mass all I could think was am I really still a Catholic? This bedrock part of my life has been shaken.
Quite a few cardinals to name in just over five years.
Less Catholics so more cardinals. Works for me.
Will they all be tweeting?
God help us.
Please, please, do not let this false shepherd shake your faith. The Church has endured false shepherds before, and she will outlast this one. Remember, Jesus promised us that the Gates of Hell would not prevail against Holy Mother Church.
Prayers for you.
Sadly, as he is adding new “progessive” Cardinals, we can rest assured that Bergoglio was not the last “false shepherd”. He is ensuring that another homosexualist, abortion-tolerant, Eucharist-dismissing Cardinal follows him as Pope.
And it’s all being done for the express purpose of demoralizing the truly faithful, and undermining the Church’s authority.
Bergoglio is not a “false shepherd” . He is an anti-Pope at best, but I wonder if he is something even far worse.
You should not simply post whole articles here at FR. You should post an excerpt, and link back to the source so the original writer gets the credit she deserves.
He wants to ensure that his successor will be like him.
Yes, very sad, but I pray for the Church every day, and I know the Holy Spirit will prevail.
As I keep trying to tell all yinz, the FIXXXXXX is in.
Pretty soon he is going to make his move, purging and silencing opponents. And throwing verbose Dubias at him is not going to stop it.
I think youre right.
But it is during the worst difficulties that we grow strongest.
God is with us!
However five current Cardinals turn eighty over the course of the next year so it will remain around 120.
Nor online petitions either. Nor calls and letters to cardinals and bishops who are not our own! These things make us look ignorant or foolish. Communicate properly with the hierarchy or not at all.
