Commie Left Wing Bastard Chicago Archbishop Cupich to be elevated to rank of cardinal - Will he make Rev Michael Pfleger his personal FLUFFER?
"The Cubs won the second game of the playoffs and now lead 2-0," Cupich said, prompting the cathedral to erupt in laughter and applause.
The more relevant news in the pews was that at about 5 a.m. Sunday, Cupich was awakened by a phone call from a friend in Rome who told him that Pope Francis announced in St. Peter's Square that Cupich will be elevated to the rank of cardinal, one of the Roman Catholic Church's most prestigious titles next to the papacy.
He told worshippers that he was "so very grateful and humbled," by the news, and those gathered broke into louder applause. A moment later, Cupich said, "but on to more important things — the Gospel."
Installed as archbishop in November 2014, Cupich, 67, will receive his red hat in Rome on Nov. 19, the day before the church's Year of Mercy ends. The elevation means he will have a vote in future papal elections.
"I would have to say as I reflect on it, while I'm pleased with this, I don't feel any different," Cupich told the media gathered in the cathedral courtyard after Mass. "I feel as though I have to be the same person that I've always been. So, this isn't going to give me greater impulse or hold me back from being involved in the lives of people. I just don't feel as though it is in any way going to change me personally."
