Shaun Courtney of the local Georgetown Patch website conducted a brief interview via email with me this morning on the subject of Archbishop Wuerl’s appointment to cardinal today. A brief excerpt:
Pope Benedict XVI announced Wednesday in Rome that 24 bishops will be elevated to cardinal in November. The Archbishop of Washington, Archbishop Wuerl will be called to a consistory on Nov. 20 at the Vatican where he will become a cardinal. Thomas Peters, a Georgetown resident and writer/editor of AmericanPapist.com, weighed in on the announcement.
