Vatican Names Archbishop Dolan as Cardinal

Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan, former archbishop for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, has been named cardinal by Pope Benedict XVI.

Announced Jan. 6, 2012, Cardinal-designate Dolan is one of 22 bishops who will be elevated to rank of cardinal during an ordinary consistory Feb. 18 in Rome. As a cardinal, Dolan will become one of Pope Benedict’s closest advisors in governance of the universal Church and serve as a papal elector. Cardinal-designate Dolan was archbishop of Milwaukee from 2002 to 2009.

A consistory is simply a gathering of cardinals. There are two types: ordinary (where the cardinals outside of Rome are not required to attend); and extraordinary: where cardinals from around the world are called together (such as the election of a new pope).
