Pope Names New Cardinals

1_0_763352Pope Francis named the 16 priests who will become cardinals on February 22. They hail from various part of the world including Canada, Nicaragua, Chile, the Philippines and Haiti.

In a letter to these men the Pope wrote, “the Cardinalate does not mean a promotion, nor an honor, nor a decoration, it is simply a service…this ability to see farther into the distance and love more universally with greater intensity can only be achieved by following the same way of the Lord: the way of bowing down and of humility, in the manner of a servant”
