Local Coverage on the Consistory

The March 24 edition of The Pilot, the newspaper of the Archdiocese of Boston, published this article about Archbishop Sean P. O'Malley's arrival in Rome for the consistory at which Pope Benedict XVI elevated him to the honor of cardinal.


The cardinal-designate, who admitted he is “still trying to take it [his appointment as cardinal] all in,” emphasized his desire to keep the celebrations “low-key,” in part because of all the archdiocese has been through in recent years.

“I deliberately did not organize a pilgrimage from the archdiocese,” he said. Yet, he seemed pleased that over 500 people are attending the consistory from the Boston area.

In addition, nearly 60 family members, what the cardinal-designate refers to as “the O’Malley clan,” will also attend the consistory.

“I don’t know if Rome is ready for this,” he joked.
