Cardinal Levada turns 80 and loses his right to participate in a conclave

2016-06-15

US Cardinal William Joseph Levada turns 80-years-old. That means he loses his right to vote in an eventual conclave. With his birthday, the number of cardinal electors drops to 113.

Cardinal Levada is from California and was appointed bishop by Pope John Paul II in 1983. Three years later, he became archbishop of Portland and San Francisco in 1995. In 2005, Benedict XVI appointed him Prefect for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, a job duty he later described in 2008.

"We are here to help in a certain sense to guarantee a trademark that is the Catholic faith.” 

He became a Cardinal in 2006 and he has only participated in the conclave that elected Pope Francis.
