"And now, with great pleasure, I announce that on November 24th,  I will hold a Consistory in which I will appoint six new members of the College of Cardinals. The Cardinals have the task of helping the Successor of Peter in the performance of his ministry of confirming the brethren in the faith, and the principle and foundation of unity and communion of the Church.

Here are the names of the new cardinals:


Msgr. JAMES MICHAEL HARVEY, Prefect of the Prefecture of the Papal Household.
Beatitude BÉCHARA BOUTROS RAÏ, Maronite Patriarch, (Lebanon).
Beatitude BASELIOS CLEEMIS THOTTUNKAL, major Archbishop of the Trivandrum of the Siro-Malankaresi in India.
Msgr. JOHN OLORUNFEMI ONAIYEKAN, Archbishop of di Abuj (Nigeria)
Msgr. RUBÉN SALAZAR GÓMEZ, Archbishop of Bogotá (Colombia)
Msgr. LUIS ANTONIO TAGLE, Archbishop of  Manila (Philippines).

The New Cardinals, as you've just heard, exercise their ministry in the service of the Holy See or as priests and pastors of particular Churches in various parts of the world.
I invite everyone to pray for the newly elected, asking the maternal intercession of the Blessed
Virgin Mary, that they will always love with courage and dedication Christ and his Church."
