Key European Prelates Yet To Be Created Cardinals — By Louis Epstein.

by Anura Guruge



Louis Epstein (often mentioned in this blog) maintains a detailed and unparalleled Cardinalabili list — and has done so for decades.

‘Cardinalabili’, a play on ‘papabili‘ (i.e., pope contenders), is a term we use to refer to potential cardinals, i.e., those due or likely a cardinalate.

There was a time, when I was writing all my pope books, that I used to publish Cardinalabili lists — primarily Louis’ — on a regular basis.

I haven’t done so in years, and predicting Cardinalabili with Pope Francis is getting near impossible because he relishes not playing by the prior rules and traditions.

But, today I asked Louis for a list of JUST European prelates that should have been cardinals by now.

This is the list that Louis Epstein provided and I omitted a ‘couple’ that he marked as still being quite young and as such probably a tad premature for a red hat.


Braulio Rodriguez Plaza (b. 1/1945) — Archbishop of Toledo (Spain).

Cesare Nosiglia (b. 10/1944) — Archbishop of Turin (Italy).

Francesco Moraglia (b. 5/1953) — Patriarch of Venice (Italy).

Matteo Maria Zuppi (b. 10/1955) — Archbishop of Bologna (Italy).

Marek Jedraszewski (b. 2/1949) — Archbishop of Krakow (Poland).

Mario Enrico Delpini (b. 1951) — Archbishop of Milan (Italy).

Michel Aupetit (b. 3/1951) — Archbishop of Paris (France).

“The Zookeeper’s Wife” Movie (2017) — Reaffirmed Why I Refuse To Own A German Car.

Quite the movie. Powerful & engrossing especially given that you know that it is based on a TRUE STORY!

Schindler’s List” set in the Warsaw Zoo, Poland during WWII.

Good movie, but distressing to watch the cruelty and the inhumanity of the Germans. It really hits you.

It was PG-13 and I wanted Teischan to see it. So, I had DVRed it, a few weeks ago, during an HBO Preview weekend. She watched it, with interest, though she is still quite hazy on the historical aspects of it.

Definitely recommend it. We should never forget what happened — NOT that long ago.

In the end it is an inspirational and feel-good movie

Made me feel real good — and glad — about my near 40-year resolution not to buy German cars after I saw the German bombing of Liverpool.

A sobering day, at least for I. 78-years seems ‘so long ago’, but also ‘not that long ago’. Just 14-years before I was born.

Scary for those who thought the factors that ignited WW II had been extinguished forever.

Yes, we still have a few WW II veterans around. If you are lucky enough to meet one today remind them of this sombre anniversary.

Kind of interesting that this terrible war ended 6 years AND 1 DAY later; Started on September 1, ended September 2.

So tomorrow will be 72-years since the ending of WW II.

For those not that familiar with the history of WW II, it started with the German invasion of poor Poland.
