Neo-Cardinals: Renewal Means Old – Peripheries Means Rich

By creating new cardinals, Francis cares for the “Church of the future,” Neo-Cardinal Marcello Semeraro, 72, the new Prefect of the Causes of Saints, told IlSecoloXIV.it (October 27).

The average age of the new cardinals is 71. Semeraro knew about his nomination while watching Francis’ televised Angelus. He explains that Francis choses his cardinals according to their “personal-pastoral figure.”

As an example, he quotes Washington's Neo-Cardinal Wilton Gregory who for Semeraro recalls a “commitment for the peripheries." However, Gregory has exclusively been a bishop in the US, the richest and most powerful empire the world has ever seen, and is now a cardinal at the centre of power.

Some might argue their Christian principles compel them to become Cardinals so they may strengthen the Church and counter the rot already within the Curia @Alex A

That would be my reasoning when I bent the knee to Pope Francis and accepted the title Cardinal Ultraviolet. Bein' a "Prince of the Church"? That's too cool!

Just wait until you see the history-making reforms of Pope Ultraviolet.

That would be my reasoning when I bent the knee to Pope Francis and accepted the title Cardinal Ultraviolet. Bein' a "Prince of the Church"? That's too cool!

Just wait until you see the history-making reforms of Pope Ultraviolet.

First pope in over eight hundred years to formally call for a crusade to retake the Holy Land. Epic Vatican skullduggery follows and the Russian Federation obliges with the enthusiastic "ecumenical blessing" of the Moscow Patriarchy. .

First pope in over four hundred years to have members of the clergy publicly burned at the stake for unrepentant heresy.

...and that's just to set the tone of my Papacy. Then the house-cleaning would truly start.

Refuse the red hat, that's what. At least a man of Christian principle would.

The 13 new Cardinals named by Francis are due in Rome next month to receive their red hats. Several are in their 70s and 80s. May they travel despite Coronavirus? What are they supposed to do?
