The Archbishop Emeritus of Tamale, His Eminence Peter Cardinal Poreku Dery, was among 15 new cardinals who were created by Pope Benedict XVI, when he celebrated his first Ordinary Consistory in St Peter’s Square yesterday.

The Pope assigned the new cardinals their respective titular or diaconate. Cardinal Dery was assigned to the diaconate of St Helena Fuori Porta Prenestina.

The new cardinals include Cardinal William Joseph Levada, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith, who is assigned as diaconate of St Mary in Dominica; Cardinal Franc Rode C.M., Prefect of the Congregation for the Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life, as the diaconate of St Francis Xavier at Garbatella; Cardinal Agostino Vallini, Prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura as the diaconate of St Peter Damian ai Monti di San Paolo; Cardinal Jorge Liberato Urosa Savin, Archbishop of Caracas, Venezuela, in charge of St Mary ai Monti; and Cardinal Gaudencio B. Rosales, Archbishop of Manila, the Philippines, in charge of the Most Holy Name of Mary in Via Latina.

Others are Cardinal Jean-Pierre Ricard, Archbishop of Bordeaux, France, in charge of St Augustine; Cardinal Antonio Canizares Llovera, Archbishop of Toledo, Spain, in charge of St Pancras; Cardinal Nicholas Cheong Jinsuk, Archbishop of Seoul, Korea, in charge of Mary Immaculate of Lourdes at Boccea; Cardinal Sean Patrick O'Malley O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Boston, U.S.A., in charge of St Mary della Vittoria; and Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, Archbishop of Krakow, Poland, in charge of St Mary del Popolo.

The rest are Cardinal Carlo Caffarra, Archbishop of Bologna, Italy, in charge of St John the Baptist of the Florentines; Cardinal Joseph Zen Ze-kiun S.D.B., Bishop of Hong Kong, China, in charge of St Mary Mother of the Redeemer at Tor Bella Monaca; Cardinal Andrea Cordero Lanza di Montezemolo, Archpriest of the Basilica of St Paul's Outside-the-Walls, as the diaconate of St Mary in Portico; and Cardinal Albert Vanhoye S.J, formerly Rector of the Pontifical Biblical Institute and Secretary of the Pontifical Biblical Commission, as the diaconate of St Mary of Mercy and St Adrian at Villa Albani.

After the opening liturgical greeting, the Holy Father read the formula of creation and solemnly proclaimed the names of the new cardinals. The first of them, Archbishop William Joseph Levada, then thanked the Pope on behalf of all the others.

In his Homily, Pope Benedict highlighted how the Ordinary Public Consistory eloquently expressed "the universal nature of the Church, which has spread to every corner of the world in order to proclaim to all people the Good News of Christ our Saviour."

Turning to address the new cardinals, the Pope told them that as the successors of Peter, they would be called to work together with him in accomplishing his particular ecclesiastical service, “and this will mean for you a more intense participation in the mystery of the Cross as you share in the sufferings of Christ."

At the end of the homily the new cardinals professed their faith before the people of God, swearing their faithfulness and obedience to the Pope and his successors.

One by one, in the order in which they were created, the new cardinals then came and knelt before the Holy Father who imposed the red "biretta" or hat and assigned them their respective titular or diaconate church in Rome as a sign of their participation in the Pope's pastoral concern for the city.

The Pope gave each new cardinal his Bull of Creation and exchanged an embrace of peace with them. The cardinals then exchanged the same embrace with one another.
