115 Cardinal Electors

leave a comment »

The delightfully named Cardinal Sin of Manila had already announced that he would not travel to Rome for the Papal Conclave scheduled to being April 18th for reasons of health. Now, there is a second:

Due to illness, two cardinals will not participate in the conclave to elect a new pope, making the number of cardinal electors 115. Cardinal Jaime Sin, the retired archbishop of Manila, Philippines, and Cardinal Adolfo Suarez Rivera, retired archbishop of Monterrey, Mexico, have informed the Vatican that they will not participate in the conclave “for reasons of health,” said Vatican spokesman Joaquin Navarro Valls on Saturday.

It must be very difficult for them to miss this.
