Named successor to Cardinal Schuster

MGR. Giovanni Battista Montini, Papal Pro-Secretary of State—the Holy Father's chief collaborator in the government of the Universal Church—has been appointed Archbishop of Milan in succession to the late Cardinal Schuster.

The Archbishop of Milan invariably becomes a Cardinal : occasionally, as in the case of Cardinal Schuster. he receives the Red Hat even before his episcopal consecration.

Pope Pius XI was Cardinal Archbishop of Milan for a few months before his election to succeed Pope Benedict XV.

Mgr. Montini was allowed by the Holy Father last year to decline the Red Hat (so, too, was the other ProSecretary of State, Mgr. Tardini) so that he might continue to serve His Holiness in the Vatican. Mgr. Montini and Mgr. Tardini were thereupon appointed Pro-Secretaries and not long afterwards they were given the extraordinary honour of positions ranking next to Cardinals.

They both served in the Papal Secretariate under the present Pope as well as under the successor of His Holiness in the Secretariate, the late Cardinal Maglione.
