Who Won't be Wearing Red this Year?

Catholic World News asks who missed out on being named a Cardinal here.

I wonder why none of the most traditional bishops especially those cited by Bishop Rifan (himself a fine candidate) were elevated to the status of Cardinal?

At a Una Voce conference in Providence, RI Bishop Rifan stated:

"You have four bishops who allow all their diocesan priests to offer the Traditional Mass [privately] at any time," Bishop Rifan said. He specifically cited Archbishop Raymond Burke of St. Louis, Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz of Lincoln, Neb.; Bishop Thomas Doran of Rockford, Ill.; and Bishop Alvaro Corrada, SJ, of Tyler, Texas, who have been generous in the Ecclesia Dei indult application, as requested and emphasized repeatedly by the late Pope John Paul II."

Files under things that make you go, hmmmmm.

I thinks no card-carrying traditional Catholic REALLY wonders why no trad Bishops -or even trad-friendly bishops -were not called to cardinalhood.

Just imagine a 'voting block' of trad cardinals at a conclave! Imagine more dioceses which allow the TLM for every priest any time!

Traditional Bishops - and priests- are considered a threat to the VII status quo of dumbed down catholisism (small 'c' on purpose).

We don't pray enough for this to happen.
