On Cardinals

Perhaps we can pray this day for Archbishops Dolan and O'Brien that they may be open to the grace of their new positions, that they may discharge faithfully the duties the Church asks of them from this day until their passing:

CHAPTER III.THE CARDINALS OF THE HOLY ROMAN CHURCH
Can. 349 The cardinals of the Holy Roman Church constitute a special college which provides for the election of the Roman Pontiff according to the norm of special law. The cardinals assist the Roman Pontiff either collegially when they are convoked to deal with questions of major importance, or individually when they help the Roman Pontiff through the various offices they perform, especially in the daily care of the universal Church.
--
Can. 351 §1. The Roman Pontiff freely selects men to be promoted as cardinals, who have been ordained at least into the order of the presbyterate and are especially outstanding in doctrine, morals, piety, and prudence in action; those who are not yet bishops must receive episcopal consecration.
