24 new Cardinals

Today the Holy Father Benedict XVI announced his intention to create 24 Cardinals in a consistory to be held February 18, 2012, four of whom are beyond the voting age of 80.

Two of the designates are of special interest to me: Archbishop Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York, and Archbishop Edwin O'Brien, Pro-Grand Master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem.

Rocco has the full list of Cardinals-designate.

I will be in Rome in February, but will unfortunately be leaving Rome the day before the consistory.
