Cardinal Quezada Toruño turns 80. Elector cardinals drops to 124

Card. Rodolfo Quezada Toruño

Archbishop Emeritus of Guatemala“Divine Providence allowed me to work a few years ago as a mediator between the guerrillas and the government. I believe this work could have been well done by any of the bishops of Guatemala. Something I like is that from the moment of the peace signing until now, thank God, we have not had a single person killed that was involved in the war.”

Rodolfo Quezada is currently the Archbishop Emeritus of Guatemala. John Paul II made him a cardinal in 2003 and two years later he voted in the conclave that elected Pope Benedict XVI. Quezada?s 80th birthday means ; there are now 124 cardinal electors and 88 non-electors.
