E-mail article View text version View most popular Pope Benedict XVI named 15 new cardinals today, including prelates from Boston, Hong Kong, and Krakow, Poland, adding his first installment to the elite group of churchmen who will elect his successor.
Benedict read aloud the names during his weekly general audience and said they would be elevated during a ceremony at the Vatican on March 24.
Among those chosen to receive the red hat that the so-called princes of the church wear, Benedict also named the archbishops of Caracas, Venezuela, Seoul, Korea and Manilla, Philippines.
