Vatican City, Nov 26, 2012 / 11:51 am
The six new cardinals from various parts of the globe shared their excitement after making their vows to Pope Benedict XVI in St. Peter's Basilica.
Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle of the Philippines said that being made a cardinal has made him feel "excited and tired," as well as a bit stunned.
Pope Benedict swore-in the cardinals at a Nov. 24 consistory at which the men promised to praise God and be faithful to the Apostolic See "even to the shedding of blood."
The Pope chose them from six different countries and they will now lead over 230 million Catholics of the world's 1.2 billion.
