Congratulations Cardinal Collins!

February 18, 2012
The time has finally come! After countless interviews and extensive coverage, Archbishop Thomas Collins of Toronto was formally inducted into the College of Cardinals at a public consistory earlier today. Collins is now the 16th Cardinal in Canadian history.
As you can see in the video above, Archbishop Collins was called forward by Pope Benedict XVI. He was given his red biretta and ring. Cardinal Collins was then named the symbolic pastor of the Church of St. Patrick in Rome, as per the tradition of giving each Cardinal a titular Church.
On behalf of the entire team at Salt + Light Catholic Media Foundation, we congratulate Cardinal Collins on this joyous and monumental occasion. Be assured of our continued prayers and support.
