4/ The Mexican Title Assigned To Next Pope Hopeful U.S. Cardinal Timothy Dolan Of New York — February 21, 2012.
This should be fairly self explanatory. On the left is my from-scratch calculations for checking vacancies and also working out max. possible size of the College based on current titles and deaconries.
91-Year Old Philippines Cardinal José Tomás Sánchez, 7th oldest in the College at the time, died on March 9, 2012. He created a cardinal deacon in 1991 held a pro hac vice title following his jus optionis promotion in 2002. So we are down another pro hac vice — bringing that number down to 20. So here are the two pertinent tables. Enjoy.
