American Cardinal Roger Mahony turns 80

2016-02-27

The number of cardinal electors drops to 116 as Cardinal Roger Mahony turns 80. Therefore, shifting the demographics of the College.

He was archbishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles until 2011 when Benedict XVI accepted his resignation for reasons of age.

His successor, Archbishop Jose Horacio Gomez, after learning that he had covered-up cases of pedophilia in his diocese, forbade him to represent the archdiocese.

He was created a cardinal in 1991 by Pope John Paul II, and as such voted in the papal conclaves that elected Popes Benedict XVI and Francis.
