VATICAN CITY: Pope Francis said Sunday he will elevate 21 churchmen, including two from India, to the rank of cardinal in a ceremony at the Vatican this summer.
Apart from the two prelates from India, one each from Mongolia, Ghana, Nigeria, Singapore, East Timor, Paraguay and Brazil will be among the churchmen tapped by the pontiff to receive the prestigious red hat, in keeping with his determination to have church leaders reflect the global face of the Catholic church.
Francis read out his choices at the end of his traditional Sunday greetings to the public in St. Peter’s Square. At least 16 of the new cardinals will be younger than 80 and thus eligible to vote for the next pontiff in secret conclave.
The pope said he will conduct the consistory, as the ceremony to elevate churchmen to cardinal’s rank is known, on August 27.
Other new cardinals hail from France and from San Diego, California, while three are prelates who currently hold top positions at the Vatican.
