New Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church
Pope Benedict announced today a Consistory for the Creation of New Cardinals to be held on March 24th. Among the new cardinals (15) are two Americans and one Pole of note. The Americans are Cardinal-designate William Levada, formerly of San Francisco, now heading Pope Benedict's old job as Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith; and, Cardinal-designate Sean O'Malley, Archbishop of Boston. The Pole is Cardinal-designate Stanislau Dziwiz, formerly long-time personal secretary to Pope John Paul II and currently the Archbishop of Krakow. Auguri nuovi Cardinali!
