Pope Francis will soon have close to two dozen new men he can rely on to carry on his work.
They will be formally installed on September 30th.
Archbishop Christophe Pierre, the apostolic nuncio to the United States, will be one of the cardinals installed.
The national correspondent for The Tablet and Crux, John Lavenburg, got an exclusive, wide-ranging interview with him.
He joins Currents News to talk a bit more about it.
See the July 22 edition of The Tablet for the complete interview.
