    Pope names six cardinals to put stamp on Church future

    Philip Pullella (Reuters, October 24, 2012)

    Pope Benedict named six new cardinals on Wednesday, including two from countries with large Muslim populations, to put his stamp on the future of the Catholic Church.

    All six are under 80 years old and thus eligible under Church law to enter a conclave that will one day choose Benedict's successor.

    Among them is American Archbishop James Michael Harvey who, as head of the "Pontifical Household", was the boss of the pope's former butler Paolo Gabriele. He was convicted this month of stealing papal documents and leaking them to the media.
