The Pope’s New Cardinals

Pope Benedict XVI appointed 24 new cardinals in 2010. The makeup of those new appointees carries theological and ecclesiastical importance because the College of Cardinals will elect the next pope from its own ranks. Reversing the trend begun by Pope John Paul II to increase the national, ethnic and racial diversity of the cardinals, two-thirds of Pope Benedict’s appointments are Italian. Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly’s Bob Abernethy interviewed the Rev. Thomas Reese, an authority on the Curia and the Vatican bureaucracy, to explore the implications of these new appointments.
