John Allen on the New Cardinals

News item from John Allen of NCR (and soon, of the Globe).

The money quote (at least for my money):

the choice of Cardinals of Burkina Faso and Haiti shows concern for people struck by poverty, a vintage touch from the pope who’s said he dreams of a “poor church for the poor.” Haiti, by many measures among the most impoverished nations on earth, has never had a residential cardinal before, although two Haitians have become cardinals as heads of Vatican departments.
