Cardinal Stickler, 97, celebrates 70th anniversary of ordination
Alfons Maria Cardinal Stickler, S.D.B., the former Vatican librarian and oldest (and well-loved) member of the College of Cardinals, today celebrates his 70th anniversary of ordination. That's a bit amazing when I think about it: He was ordained two years before the beginning of the Second World War. Along with the Holy Father, we are happy to wish him a joyful day and many happy and blessed anniversaries to come, God willing.
