Watch Consistory which gave us our new Cardinal

The Consistory of Saturday 22nd February and Mass with new Cardinals celebrated in St Peter's Basilica on Sunday 23rd February were both streamed live on Vatican TV over the weekend.

It was the first collection of cardinals created under Pope Francis and saw 19 bishops and archbishops receive the red hat of a cardinal. They reflected the multi-national and diverse nature of the Church in the twenty-first century, coming from cities such as London and Buenos Aires and poorer areas such as Haiti and Burkina Faso.
