Three members of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre have emerged from amongst the new cardinals whose names were announced last Sunday 9 October by Pope Francis.
We offer our congratulations to Msgr. Blase J. CUPICH, archbishop of Chicago and Grand Prior of the Lieutenancy USA North Central, Msgr. Carlos Osoro SIERRA, archbishop of Madrid, and Msgr. Renato CORTI, archbishop emeritus of Novara.
We assure them of our spiritual union with them, something which the Grand Master will convey to them personally during the Mass presided on by the Holy Father, next 20 November in Rome, the day after the Consistory. This celebration will gather them together with the other Cardinals for the closure of the Year of Mercy.
