    Background: THOUSANDS ATTENDED A PUBLIC CONSISTORY IN ST. PETER'S BASILICA, ROME, MARCH 22, WHEN POE JOHN CONFERRED TRADITIONAL ED HATS ON EIGHT OF THE NEW CARDINALS CREATED AT A SECRET CEREMONY IN THE VATICAN ON MARCH 20. TWO CARDINALS WHO MISSED THE CEREMONIES WERE TO UNDERGO THE FINAL PART OF THEIR ELEVATION TO THE SACRED COLLEGE AT A FUTURE DATE.

    AFTER THE POPE WAS CARRIED INTO ST. PETER'S ON HIS PORTABLE THRONE THIRTY OTHER CARDINALS PRESENT PERFORMED THE "OBEDIENCE". THE NEW CARDINALS WERE TAKEN ADMITTED. THEY GENUFLECTED THREE TIMES IN FRONT OF THE POPE AND WERE EMBRACED BY HIM.

    POPE JOHN THEN PLACED THE BROAD-BRIMMED FLAT RED HATS ON THE HEADS OF THE CARDINALS, AND THEY RETURNED TO THE CHAPEL OF ST. PETRONI??? PETRONILLA WHERE THEY RESUMED THEIR RITUAL PRONE POSITION.

    THE POPE GAVE EACH NEW CARDINAL A TOPAZ RING AND ASSIGNED TO EACH A TITULAR CHURCH IN ROME. THE POSSESSION OF THE TITULAR CHURCH MAKES EACH CARDINAL A PARISH PRIEST OF ROME, IN MEMORY OF ANCIENT TIMES WHEN A POPE'S CLOSEST ADVISERS WERE PRIESTS IN CHARGE OF ROMAN PARISHES.

    CREATION OF THE TEN CARDINALS BROUGHT THE TOTAL MEMBERSHIP OF THE COLLEGE CARDINALS TO NINETY, EIGHTY-SEVEN OF WHOM ARE PUBLICLY KNOWN.
