sg/w2ur SINGAPORE - The head of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Singapore, Archbishop William Goh, will be appointed a cardinal in August, making him the first Singaporean to hold the rank. Pope Francis will appoint 21 new cardinals during a Consistory - a formal meeting of the College of Cardinals - on Aug 27, the Vatican News reported on Sunday (May 29). Pope Francis announced on Sunday that he will create 21 new Cardinals at a Consistory on 27 August. "On Saturday, Aug 27, I will hold a Consistory for the creation of new cardinals. After the Aug 27 ceremony to officially install them, known as a consistory, Pope Francis will have appointed about 83 of the some 133 cardinal electors, increasing the possibility his successor will be a man reflecting his position on key issues. Let us pray that they will help me in my mission as Bishop of Rome for the good of all God's people," the report quoted Pope Francis as saying. “He also said that he will meet during the next two days (29-30 August) with all the cardinals to reflect on the new Apostolic Constitution Praedicate evangelium ,” the report added. The new cardinals represent the Catholic Church worldwide and reflect a wide variety of cultures, contexts and pastoral ministries, the report added. The apex court also said the trial judge made a mistake in rejecting Mark’s testimony because he and Raj “had more than ample opportunity to collude and manufacture the story.

Cardinals are second only to the Pope in the hierarchy of the Catholic Church. With Pope Francis’ announcement, the number will grow to 229 Cardinals, of whom 131 will be electors, on 27 August. Other cardinal electors come from France, Nigeria, Brazil, India, the United States, East Timor, Italy, Ghana and Paraguay. The Vatican News said Pope Francis will meet all the cardinals over two days, on Aug 29 and 30, to reflect on the new Apostolic Constitution, titled Praedicate evangelium. This refers to a piece of formal legislation announced by him in March, which will take effect on June 5. With his new role, Archbishop Goh and his fellow Cardinals are the second most senior in the ranks of the Roman Catholic clergy after Pope Francis. There are currently 208 cardinals, including 117 electors who can vote for a new Pope and 91 non-electors. This number will grow to 229 cardinals, including 131 electors, on Aug 27. In 1985, Archbishop Goh was ordained a priest in the Archdiocese of Singapore.

He then went on to undertake his Licentiate in Dogmatic Theology in the Pontifical Gregorian University, Rome in 1992. It is unclear if Archbishop Goh will be made an elector. The Straits Times has contacted the Archbishop's Office for comment. He took office as Archbishop on 18 May 2013. More On This Topic .
