CARDINAL J. Francis Stafford, the Archbishop of Denver, adjusts his new red hat prior to meeting friends and well-wishers at the ' Vatican last Saturday. Earlier in the day the Holy Father bestowed the red hat on 20 bishops and asked the new princes of the Church for their help in preparation for the Holy Year and beyond. During a Mass on Sunday he confirmed their relationship with the Diocese of Rome by slipping a ring on the finger of each of the new cardinals. The College of Cardinals now numbers 165.
