Black Catholics express joy at elevation of first African American cardinal
To Father Robert Boxie III, the Catholic chaplain at Howard University in Washington, the naming of Washington’s archbishop “as a cardinal is huge, it’s historic.”
On Nov. 28, Pope Francis elevated 13 new cardinals from around the world to the College of Cardinals at a consistory in Rome. Cardinal Wilton D. Gregory, who has been Washington’s archbishop since 2019, was among them. The pope had announced the new cardinals Oct. 25.
“The fact that it comes in the month of November, Black Catholic History Month, is also very symbolic,” said Father Boxie.
A priest of the Archdiocese of Washington, he was one of several Black Catholics who spoke to the Catholic Standard, Washington’s archdiocesan newspaper, about what Cardinal Gregory’s elevation means to them and to the church as a whole. – America Magazine
