FLASH... Pope Francis has just released the names of 19 new cardinals and one of them is Haitian... Chibly Langlois, Bishop of Les Cayes, Haiti, will be installed as a new cardinal in a Vatican ceremony on Feb. 22 2014... What does that mean? For one thing... One of the duties of the cardinals is to ELECT POPES... This is BIG NEWS for Haitian Catholics...

Somebody asked on Facebook: Is Chibly Langlois really Haitian?

Yes... Chibly Langlois se neg Jacmel... LOL...

Mgr. Langlois was born 29 Nov 1958 at la Vallée de Jacmel, h graduated with a degree in philosophy and theology at the University of Notre-Dame in Port-au-Prince. he was ordained on 22 Sep 1991.

What are the duties of a Cardinal in Catholicism?

Read this...

The duties of the cardinals include attending the meetings of the College and making themselves available individually or in groups to the pope if he requests their counsel.

A cardinal's other main function is electing the pope whenever, by death or resignation, the see becomes vacant... During the sede vacante, the period between a pope's death or resignation and the election of his successor, the day-to-day governance of the Church as a whole is in the hands of the College of Cardinals.
