Pope names new
BY CARLA GOMEZ
Pope Francis announced yesterday the names of 19 new cardinals from around the world, one of whom is a Filipino, 74-year-old Archbishop of Cotabato Orlando Quevedo.
Bacolod Bishop Vicente Navarra last night said he is very happy with Quevedo’s appointment, because Mindanao needs a cardinal.
He described Quevedo as a scholar and a good administrator.
The Philippines, at present, has three cardinals: Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, 56, Metropolitan Archbishop of Manila; Cardinal Gaudencio Rosales, 81, Metropolitan Archbishop emeritus of Manila; and Cardinal Ricardo Vidal, 82, Metropolitan Archbishop emeritus of Cebu, Navara said.
