Cardinals on my blog

I have added a new page to the header atop this blog. On it, I present the full list of all members of the College of Cardinals and their specific duties in the Church. This to accompany my regular post in the ‘Cardinal watch’ category. Maybe it’ll be a handy resource for those interested in such matters. Obviously the page will be updated as changes occur, for example when a cardinal turns 80, passes away, gets a new job, or when new cardinals are created.

As a consequences, the page containing my personal story of why I became Catholic has been moved to the ‘About this blog’ blurb in the left sidebar. I did so in order to prevent the top bar from becoming too crowded. There really shouldn’t be more than one line of text there, I think.

I'm a 37-year-old lay Catholic from the diocese of Groningen-Leeuwarden. I write about the Catholic Church in the Netherlands. I not only enjoy bringing selected developments to the attention of readers, but I also think that it is sometimes important to allow a wider audience to read about the state of the Church in the Netherlands. That's why a fair number of posts about that topic will be translations of Dutch articles, episcopal writings and whatever else.
