Malian ‘Cardinal Of Peace’ is Elevated by The Pope

(GIN) Bishop Jean Zerbo of Bamako, Mali, is one of five men from four continents elevated by Pope Francis to the College of Cardinals. The move continues the Pope’s practice of adding men from the peripheries of the Catholic word to the body that will elect his successor.

In choosing the five clerics, the Argentine pope passed over dioceses in Italy, the U.S. and other countries whose bishops traditionally receive the rank.
The weekend announcement underscores two priorities of the Pope’s reign since his election in 2013: the needs of the poor and reaching out to other religions.
