A New Augustinian Cardinal

Celebrating Cardinal Robert Prevost, O.S.A.

On Saturday, September 30th, Archbishop Robert Prevost, O.S.A., become a Cardinal during the Vatican Consistory.

Cardinal Prevost gave a speech to Pope Francis on behalf of the other Cardinals-Elect at the beginning of the ceremony. After a reading from the Acts of the Apostles and a homily by Pope Francis, he and the other Cardinals-Elect made a profession of faith and oath of fidelity. Following this, they each received their biretta, ring, and titular Roman church. For his titular church, Cardinal Prevost was named Cardinal-Deacon of the Church of St. Monica.

Congratulations, Cardinal Prevost! We will keep you in our prayers, and we thank you for serving our worldwide Church in this new role!
