  1. There is another interesting detail concerning this forthcoming consistory: For the first time will be created cardinal a patriarch of ,Eastern Catholic´ (or ,Uniate´) origin while his predecessor is still alive. The cardinal-designate concerned is Béchara Boutros Rai, chief hierarch of the Maronites. It is true that the Uniate patriarchs are not made cardinals on a regular basis, the only exception being the Maronite Church: Patriarch Rai is its fourth spiritual head who in series will be created. The crucial difference is however that at every of those former occasions the predecessor of the actual patriarch was already dead. Sometimes it is even stated that (even if there are no explicite canonical hindrances) in the case of Uniate patriarchates there never will be two cardinals at the same see at once.
