MONTREAL – When asked what advice or encouragement Cardinal Thomas Collins might need in his new position, Cardinal Jean-Claude Turcotte, archbishop of Montreal, laughed.
"I will it say it's courage," Turcotte said from his office in Montreal. "To be a cardinal, it's a lot of work. It is not only to elect the pope!" He will become a member of many congregations or dicasteries in the Holy See, he said. "Cardinals are the counsellors of the pope in those different congregations."
