Consistory 2007

"Usque ad Sanguinis Effusionem"

For an eyewitness account, please read my friend Zadok's post. He also attended this morning's Mass of the Rings. Here are my favorite images.


Pope Benedict XVI, wearing the Mitra of late Pope Pius IX, waves to faithful and pilgrims while arriving inside St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican Saturday, Nov. 24, 2007. The pontiff celebrated a Consistory in which he elevated to the rank of Cardinal 23 churchmen from around the world, telling them they must be willing to shed their blood to spread the Christian faith.
