The Pope passes out 15 red hats, including two Americans, the Archbishop of Boston, Sean O’Malley and the former Bishop of San Francisco, William Levada, now prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. What will RomanCatholicBlog say about the selections and what they mean for the overall make-up of the College of Cardinals?
UPDATE: One of the new cardinals is Bishop Joseph Zen, and ChinaConfidential is impressed with the soon to be Cardinal Zen. (What a name!)
And PapaFamilias has the entire list. It includes Krakow’s Archbishop Dziwisz, longtime personal secretary to John Paul II.
