New Cardinals

Among the new cardinals announced this week, I was delighted to see the name of Fr Urbano Navarette. I wasn`t sure if he was still alive but at the age of 87 he has been awarded a red hat. Fr Navarette taught canon law at the Greg in Rome when I was there. I had my oral exam in my finals with him. He taught the course on marriage. He always came across as a man of great integrity and with a deep love for the Church. In my time at seminary I had often been somewhat guarded in my response to a number of our teachers but in the Greg canon law aula I found, for the most part that, I had great respect for them and especially for Fr Navarette. Ad multos annos!
