Pope Francis names new Cardinals

Sun, 10/09/2016 - 7:30pm

Pope Francis has named seventeen (arch)bishops as cardinals. Three are from the United States.

We wish God's abundant blessings upon Archbishop Blase Cupich of the Archdiocese of Chicago, Archbishop Joseph Tobin of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, and Bishop Kevin Farrell, most recently from the Diocese of Dallas.

The ritual marking their elevation will take place at the Vatican on November 19 -- on the eve of the close of the Year of Mercy.
