GMA News Online reports that Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Tagle "will be among the six non-European Roman Catholic prelates who will join the Vatican’s College of Cardinals in November." The report noted that Pope Benedict XVI made the announcement on Wednesday, October 24.

 

The report revealed: "At 55, Tagle will become the world’s second youngest cardinal and has been touted as a future papal contender. Cardinals advise the pontiff and elect his successor among themselves upon his death. The newest group of appointees will bring the total number of cardinals worldwide to 120. The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) website mistakenly said that Tagle would be the world’s youngest cardinal."

 

The report added: "The other new cardinals will be the American James Michael Harvey, Lebanon’s Bechara Boutros Rahi, India’s Baselios Cleemis, Nigeria’s John Onaiyekan and Colombia’s Ruben Salazar Gomez. Cleemis, at 53, will be the world’s youngest cardinal."
