In the Roman Curia, welcome but not surprising is the elevation of Archbishop Burke, absent is Archbishop Fisichella, the President of the new Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelisation:
Angelo Amato (Saints), Fortunato Baldelli (Apostolic Penitentiary), Raymond Leo Burke (Signatura), Velasio de Paolis (Economic Affairs), Francesco Monterisi (Archpriest of Saint Paul), Kurt Koch (Christian Unity), Gianfranco Ravasi (Culture), Paolo Sardi, Robert Sarah (Cor Unum), Mauro Piacenza (Clergy).Archbishops of Major Sees, I am surprised the Archbishop of Westminster has not been made a Cardinal and will presumably have to wait until Cormac is eighty. It is good to see Archbishop Ranjith amongst the new Cardinals:
Antonios Naguib, Alexandria (Egypt); Paolo Romeo, Palermo (Italy); Reinhrad Marx, Munich and Freising (Germany); Kazimierz Nycz, Warsaw (Poland); Donald William Wuerl, Washington (USA); Laurent Monsengwo Pasinya, Kinshasa (Congo): Medardo Joseph Mazombwe, Lusaka (Zambia); Albert Malcolm Ranjith Patanbendige Don, Colombo (Sri Lanka); Raul Eduardo Vela Chiriboga, Quito (Ecuador); Raymundo Damasceno Assis, Aparecida (Brazil).Those over 80 are those without voting rights, it is good to see included is Domenico Bartolucci, the former perpetual maestro of the Sistine Chapel who was treated shamelessly in Vatican liturgy-wars in the earlier part of JPII's reign and sacked. His Cardinalate is the ultimate rehabilitation and vindication:
Elio Sgreccia (Italy), José Manuel Estepa Llaurens (Spain), Walter Brandmuller (Germany), Domenico Bartolucci (Italy - pictured above with the Holy Father).
