larger font

On October 20, Pope Benedict XVI announced the appointment of 24 new cardinals to the Catholic Church.  The newly appointed include ten Italians, four Africans and two Americans. The two from the United States are the Most Reverend Donald W. Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington, D.C., and the Most Reverend Raymond Burke, head of the Apostolic Signature, the Vatican’s highest tribunal. The 24 will be installed as cardinals at a Consistory that will take place at the Vatican on November 20. Archbishop Wuerl was in the Diocese of Raleigh on October 8 as Principal Celebrant and Homilist of the annual Red Mass. (See story and Archbishop Wuerl’s Red Mass homily.)

Stories on the new cardinals and an interview with Archbishop Wuerl are available from CNS Video, which may be accesed at the link below or from the CNS Video button on the Diocesan home page. Other stories include the Holy Father’s request that economic growth must respect the needs of humanity and that all exercise of authority must be of service to justice and charity.
