Cardinal Bertone is Camerlengo: The 117 Cardinals Who Will Elect the 266th Pope

Edit: unless something else unprecedented happens.  Cardinal Kasper will also vote.

The Dean of the College of Cardinals will celebrate Holy Mass with the assembled cardinals in St. Peter's Basilica.  The Cardinal Dean since 2005, Cardinal Angelo Sodano,  is no longer eligible to vote because of his age. In 2005 Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger was Dean of the College of Cardinals. After Mass, the voting cardinals will make an invocation of the Holy Spirit in the Sistine Chapel, where they are sequestered until the election of the new Pope.
In the coming conclave 117 cardinals will be eligible to vote, which will be the highest-ranking official will be Tarcisio Cardinal Pietro Bertone Evasio. Since neither the Dean nor his deputy are members retired from the conclave, they will head the oldest and most senior among the elected cardinals of the conclave, which will be Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re, the emeritus Prefect of the Congregation for Bishops,  the eldest among the Cardinals of the conclave who is among the eldest of the member bishops of the conclave. The College of Cardinals is divided into three grades, into cardinal-bishops, cardinal-priests and cardinal-deacons.
The conclave will be between the 15th and 20th Begin March. According to Article 33 of the Apostolic Constitution  Universi Domici Gregis of Pope John Paul II in 1996 it allows the German Cardinal Walter Kasper, the oldest of the electors to still participate in the conclave. According to the original rules of order by Pope Paul VI., only those cardinals are eligible to vote who have  not completed their 80th year at the beginning of the conclave. Cardinal Kasper is 80 on 5 March.
From the German-speaking countries, there are seven Cardinals attending the conclave, Cardinal Kasper (President Emeritus of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity), Cardinal Meisner (archbishop of Cologne), Cardinal Lehmann (Bishop of Mainz), Cardinal Schönborn (Archbishop of Vienna ), Cardinal Koch (President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity), Cardinal Marx (Archbishop of Munich-Freising), Woelki Cardinal (Archbishop of Berlin).

Also, tears filled the eyes of many Cardinals, including Cardinal Bertone today, as the Holy Father said his last public Mass, according to Rome Reports.

The document manipulator? Oh good.

I wish I hadn't read this. What a collection of villains: Mahony, Lehman, Re, Wuerl, Kasper, Schonborn, etc.

God help us.

You forgot George, O’Malley and Lavada. Yikes!

This will be the last round-up for a lot of these old villains. By my count, 20 of these men are 78.2 years of age or older. I wonder if this doesn't in some way explain the speed with which all these events are transpiring. Regardless, it's Jesus' Church - which they about to learn. God help us and Mary protect us!

And Koch and Dolan too. Good grief.

Dave said...

So Bertone the Falsifier is going to be on the Chair of Peter in the interim. It just don't get any better than that now, does it?

Here he is in a video saying goodbye to the Pope. They sure can throw a party on a spur of the moment. Ahem.

In the old days they would call this "desertion in the face of the enemy". Now it's called "great humility". Just another Vat II innovation and novelty to excite the masses and to weaken the office of the Papacy.

Tancred said...

The people who are calling this “great courage” are people like ++Wuerl, ++Sodano, and the typical listeners of National Public Radio.

The 22nd is the Feast of Peter's Chair. I would have thought that the Pope would choose that day instead of just the end of the month like some corporate retirement that accommodates their payroll department.

But that is the date according to the traditional calendar. I have no idea what sort of calendar those in Rome use.
