On September 28 , 2010, Italian Cardinal Priest Michele Giordano turned 80, thus ceasing to be a cardinal elector.
The College of Cardinals remains at 179 (as it has since May 4, 2010) though we are now down to 103 electors.
As is our wont, all the relevant postings and listings have been updated to reflect this change, in particular:
0/ The ‘College of Cardinals’ display ‘box’ on these pages.
1/ College of Cardinals demographics << here >>
2/ 6-page listing of the College of Cardinals statistics << here >>
3/ Father John’s increasingly popular Cardinalabili list, which is now in its 14th iteration … though just started a couple of months ago << here >>
There is also a new posting on the latest thinking as to when we might get the next cardinal creating consistory — November 20, 2010?
I haven’t updated the consistory data, for example << here >>, because I clearly specify when that data was compiled. I only have so much time, and I have to prioritize. SMILE.
