2013-04-08

The three cardinals are: German Cardinal Walter Kasper, president emeritus of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, who turned 80 on March 5; Italian Cardinal Severino Poletto, archbishop emeritus of Turin, who turned 80 on March 18; and Mexican Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iñiguez, archbishop emeritus of Guadalajara, who turned 80 on March 28.

Five other prelates will turn 80 by the end of 2013, three Europeans and two Latin Americans. According to Canon Law, only cardinals under 80 years old at the start of the papal vacancy can take part in the conclave. Last month 115 of them did so, while two others gave up their right to participate.
