Or you could simply look at the countries from which the 20 new cardinals come, and see for yourself: from Mozambique to Mexico, from Thailand to...

    ROME -- Theologically all cardinals may be equal, but in terms of celebrity appeal, some are obviously more equal than others. Each consistory, when a pope inducts new members into the churchs most exclusive club, tends to have its own rock star that one new cardinal who is head and shoulders above everyone else on the buzz meter.In February 2001, when John Paul II created a whopping 42 new cardinals, that rock star was Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga of Honduras, a handsome, young polyglot who seemed the new face of the church in Latin America. In March 2006, Benedicts first...

    Seeing the shot above, one can almost hear that now-famous Midwestern voice saying, "Allright, everybody...." For Timothy Michael Dolan, this weekend caps a meteoric rise of the kind only he could make look natural. To use just one example, before the 62 year-old prelate, never have the terms "Archbishop of New York" and "President of the American Bishops" been able to exist in the same sentence, unless historians were discussing the dual legitimacy which Francis Spellman lusted, and even John O'Connor earnestly sought, yet neither would ever know. Of course, not even two years after his appointment to the...

Among the newly named cardinals are two Americans: Timothy Dolan, the current archbishop of New York and Archbishop Edwin OBrien, the former archbishop of Baltimore and the current Grand Master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem. I was gonna post that news and leave it at that. But it occurred to me that for...

    VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – Pope Benedict installed 24 new Roman Catholic cardinals from around the world on Saturday in his latest batch of appointments that could include his successor as leader of the 1.2 billion member church. As their national delegations cheered, the men were elevated to their new rank as top advisers to the pope at a solemn ceremony in St Peter's Basilica known as a consistory. Each of the 24 men swore their loyalty to him, to future popes and to the church, even if it meant giving their lives. Twenty of the new cardinals are under 80...

    Thomas J. Reese, S.J., senior fellow at the Woodstock Center in Georgetown, Md., former editor in chief of America, and author of Inside the Vatican sent us along this helpful primer--designed for the media but informative for everyone--for the upcoming consistory.  Here's Tom's typically thorough take: There are two kinds of consistories. Ordinary consistories are normally for certain solemn ceremonies such as canonizations, the conferral of the pallium to archbishops, or the creation of new cardinals. For an extraordinary consistory, the pope calls all the College of Cardinals to Rome to advise him on issues facing the church. The discussions in extraordinary consistories...

By the end of March 2010, there will be no fewer than 12 positions available for the elevation of new cardinals.Cardinals reaching the age of 80 are no longer able to vote in the election of a new Pope, should the occasion arise. Currently there are 182 members of the College of Cardinals, spanning all ages, with 112 eligible to vote in Papal conclaves.The traditional...

    "For you must be willing to conduct yourselves with fortitude, even to the shedding of your blood..." That's the significance of cardinal red, and in the moment immediately before the conferral of the scarlet birette, it is the heart of the traditional exhortation given the college's new intake by the Pope. The ceremony has begun, with more of a flair than most recent consistories have had -- keen evidence that, in the lace-clad Msgr Guido Marini, there's indeed a new MC in town. For the first time in memory, the white-upholstered modern Popechair has been laid aside for a...

    November Meeting usually takes on a feeling akin to the Fall Classic. This year, however, something on the horizon gave it more of an air of anticipation. That "something," of course, is next week's consistory -- the first year-end creation of new cardinals since the class of 1994, whose elevations likewise took place over Thanksgiving Weekend. The traditional cycle of festivities in Rome begins on Turkey Day, when the red hats-to-be join the rest of the college for two days of meetings with Pope Benedict... and CNS has a preview: The ceremony to create the cardinals takes only an...
