New cardinals from the peripheries means less community within College of Cardinals?

Noting that Pope Francis is creating Cardinals from countries far removed from one another, Vatican journalist Chris Altieri points to the risk of a lack of sense of community within the College of Cardinals. He notes that in order to carry out their mission effectively, and in particular to elect a future Pope, “they need to know each other” and understand each other’s “concerns and priorities.” Regarding the list of new Cardinals, he is surprised by the absence of the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, Sviatoslav Schevchuk, saying the context of the war would have justified a sign of attention from the Pope toward this community. He also notes that the creation as Cardinal of San Diego Bishop McElroy is an affront to the president of the U.S. Bishops’ Conference, Archbishop Jose Gomez, who has been Archbishop of Los Angeles since 2011; the diocese of San Diego is a suffragan. While many U.S. bishops support denying pro-abortion politicians access to the Eucharist, the future cardinal “takes a different view of the best pastoral approach to wayward and recalcitrant politicians, when it comes to Holy Communion,” laments Chris Altieri.
