  • Description

    AT THE NORTH AMERICA COLLEGE IN THE VATICAN CITY, THE NEWLY-APPOINTED ENGLISH-SPEAKING CARDINALS RECEIVED THEIR LETTERS OF NOMINATION TODAY (MONDAY) AFTER THE PAPAL CONSISTORY ASSENTED TO THEIR CREATION AS CARDINALS.

    IN A 46-MINUTE CEREMONY IN THE CONSISTORIAL HALL OF THE VATICAN PALACE, THE POPE ASKED FOR THE ASSENT OF 36 "OLD" CARDINALS TO HIS DECISION TO CREATE NEW CARDINALS. HIS QUESTION WAS PUT IN THE TRADITIONAL FORM: "QUID VOBIS VIDETUR" (HOW DOES THIS SEEM TO YOU?) THEY NODDED THEIR ASSENT.

    THE PONTIFF ANNOUNCED THE NAMES OF THE NEW CARDINALS AND RANG A BELL. THIS WAS THE SIGNAL FOR VATICAN MESSENGERS TO TAKE OFFICIAL LETTERS OF NOMINATION TO THE NEW CARDINALS WHO HAD GROUPED IN FOUR PLACES IN ROME.

    AT THE NORTH AMERICA COLLEGE, CARDINAL JAGER OF GERMANY, CARDINAL ROY OF CANADA, CARDINAL HEENAN OF GREAT BRITAIN, CARDINAL ROSSI OF BRAZIL AND CARDINAL JORNET OF SWITZERLAND, WERE WAITING.

    (THIS WAS POPE PAUL'S FIRST CARDINAL'S CONSISTORY SINCE HE ASCENDED TO THE PAPAL THRONE. THE SACRED COLLEGE OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH, NOW HAS 103 MEMBERS, THE HIGHEST FIGURE IN THE HISTORY OF THE CHURCH.)
