Italian Cardinal Dionigi Tettamanzi turns 80

2014-03-14

Italian Cardinal Dionigi Tettamanzi turns 80 years old on Friday March 14th, which makes him  ineligible to vote in an eventual conclave. 

He was born in Renate, Italy in 1934.  Years later, in 1957, the Archbishop of Milan, who eventually became Pope Paul VI, ordained him a priest. He was made a Cardinal by John Paul II in 1998

He voted in the conclave that elected Benedict XVI and the one where Pope Francis was elected.

The College now has 217 Cardinals, of whom 119 are eligible to vote in a conclave.
