Francis Creates 13 New Cardinals

Pope Francis announced on October 25 the creation of 13 new Cardinals at a 28 November Consistory.

9 are under 80 years and will vote in the next conclave. Two of them work in the Roman Curia:

Maltese Mario Grech, 63, the Secretary General of the Synod of Bishops,
Italian Marcello Semeraro, 72, Prefect for the Congregation of the Causes of Saints.

The others are:
Antoine Kambanda, 61, of Kilgali, Rwanda
Wilton Gregory, 72, of Washington DC, USA,
Jose Advincula, 68,of Capiz, Philippines,
Celestino Aós Braco, 75, of Santiago de Chile,
Cornelius Sim, 69, of Brunei
Augusto Paolo Lojudice, 56, of Siena, Italy
Father Mauro Gambetti, Guardian of the Franciscan Sacro Convento in Assisi

The four further Cardinal-elects over 80 years: Esquivel (Mexico), Tomasi (Italy), Cantalamessa (Italy), Feroci (Italy).

Important Archbishops left out are of Los Angeles, Paris, Venice and Milan. Cornelius Sim of Brunei has in the tiny Muslim country the responsibilities of a parish priest.

Francis will he take the time to go see Pope Benedict XVI with his new range of cardinals appointed to finalize their appointments, as the previous time?

Francis will he take the time to go see Pope Benedict XVI with his new range of cardinals appointed to finalize their appointments, as the previous time? The papal seat and papal power are two distinct inseparable things. It's like the shape of the Cross. There is the horizontal, but also the vertical! Francis has only the seat, the earthly power, the horizontal. Benedict XVI has the vertical power that Jesus entrusted to Peter. If Francis wants valid appointments, he has to go through the Pope who has vertical power. Legally, as long as Benedict XVI is alive, Francis cannot be the only master on board the boat, because vertical power escapes him. And even if Benedict XVI died, vertical power does not automatically fall on Francis. However, the Holy Spirit will not rest on Francis at this time. Francis will then have to resign IMMEDIATELY to proceed to a new conclave, and thus elect a true full successor who will then collect all the complete powers of the Pope, horizontal and vertical powers, and not separately. It seems to me that this is the basis for understanding the problem. 🤔

Tal asunción no será tenida por legítima en ninguna de sus partes, y no será posible considerar que se ha otorgado o se otorga alguna facultad de administrar en las cosas temporales o espirituales a los que son promovidos, en tales circustancias, a la dignidad de obispo, arzobispo, patriarca o primado, o a los que han asumido la función de Cardenales, o de Pontífice Romano, sino que por el contrario todos y cada uno de los pronunciamientos, hechos, actos y resoluciones y sus consecuentes efectos carecen de fuerza, y no otorgan ninguna validez, y ningún derecho a nadie.

Non voting Cardinals have received a honour of sorts. The idea of not voting past 75 is an artificial V2 rule.

What is the purpose of naming cardinals who cannot vote - this, from the title-hating pope?

An increase in rank, one that carries some very realy temporal benefits. ;-)
