Haitian Cardinal named by Pope Francis

On Sunday, Pope Francis named his first batch of cardinals and one of those selected is Haitian. This means for the first time a Haitian Cardinal will be among those who will be eligible to elect the next pope.


Monseigneur Langlois Chibly, Bishop of Les Cayes is now new Cardinal from Haiti. This is the first in the history of the country.

How about that?

Pope Francis said he will elevate a total of 19 prelates to the rank of cardinal on February. The new cardinals include people from Italy, Germany, Britain, Nicaragua, Canada, Ivory Coast, Brazil, Argentina, South Korea, Chile, Burkina Faso, the Philippines and Haiti.

These newly appointed cardinals will be part of the elite group of men who will advise Pope Francis. 16 of them will have the authority to elect the next Pope.

The consistory which is the ceremony to elevate the new cardinals, is scheduled for February 22, 2014

Thank you for the flash, but where is the picture of the nominee or the subject in reference?

The pope's picture is good, but incomplete without the principal protagonist.
