There have been one or two opportunities for the Faithful to greet and applaud the new Cardinals in the last few days; and whilst I obviously respect all of them, there are two in particular which I very much applaud . . . and as the splendid J. P. Sonnen appears to have managed to get to these functions, and has certainly been able to display all the photos, photos of these two are available to see.
His own splendid site Orbis Catholicus Secundus has a great many pictures of the Holy Fathers (as well as a great many other fascinating and important things, which you will undoubtedly enjoy going to look at) and I can only hope that he will forgive me putting two of them, of my two favourite appointments, up here for your delight.
Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke,
who has been appointed Cardinal Diaconia di Sant’Agata de’ Goti
(which is the same appointment as was held by Enrico Cardinal Dante)
Albert Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith Patabendige Don,
who has been appointed Cardinal of San Lorenzo in Lucina.
Let us pray for them, and for all the other new Cardinals.
