New Red Hats in Rome

I have to be honest, I am disappointed that Archbishop Charles Chaput of Denver was not made a cardinal…he is a marvelous teacher and pastor.

But Benedict has named his first 15, and there are lots of interesting posts on it.

Gerald has a really extensive and excellent CARDINALS IN DETAIL post that you’ll not want to miss.

Hugh Hewitt has info on the only non-bishop to be named and links to Michael Barber (a blog I’ve never happened upon, before) who has even more info.

American Papist has pictures of the new cardinals – which are great!

Amy Welborn links to many helpful pieces on why it matters, and what happens next.

While we’re noting all of this, it’s a good time to also remember that another priest has been slain in these detestible riots. Barber has more.

    While I trust our Holy Father implicitly, I would like to see much, much younger bishops and cardinals — in their early 50s, at least. Its time to start elevating some of those JPII priests!
