The pope announced the names of new 24 cardinals at the end of his general audience Oct. 20. “Cardinals,” said the pope, “have the task of helping Peter’s successor carry out his mission as permanent and visible source and foundation of the Church’s unity of faith and communion.” Cardinal-designate Burke served as the eighth Archbishop of St. Louis from 2004-08.
