TUE PRINCE OI THE CHURCH.
&lo tlie Red 1lat of the Cardinalate i%
Bestowi iU pon the Select.
The elevation of the America.i Arch
bishop Gibbons to the position of Cardi
nal of the Roman Catholic Church a
year ago. and the impressive ceremony
which took place at Rome last week are
notable events in the religious history of
this country. The new eardinal, an
adopted son of the South, possesses, to
the highest degree, the respect and
esteem of all sects, and the brief de
scription now given of the proceedings
of the Consistory at which the red hat
was bestowed upon him will prove inter
The ceremonial was held in the main
hall of the Vatican in front of the Papal
Throne. In semi-circular form around
this was arranged the chairs for the
Cardinals, presenting a scene picturesque
in the extreme. The auditory was
thronged with a favored assembly, ad
mitted by cards, and made up of the
most noted people in the Holy City.
The Pope, clad in white, with a face
beaming with benevolence, gave much
strength to the Church's claim of the
,Vicarship in its spiritual head. Before
the Consistory opened, the oath was ad
ministered to seven Cardinals, conspicu
ous among whom was Cardinal Gibbons.
Then the doors of the private chamber
were opened and the procession entered
the main hall, passing the throne with
bowed heads and uttering a prayer suit
able to the occasion.
The papal chair used upon all such
occasions is modeled after the chair of
the ancient Roman Senator, commemor
ative of the chair presented to St. Peter
by the Senator Pedeus upon his con
version to Christianity. In front, be
hind and on either side of the Pope were
the Noble Guard. The flabebelli, or tall
ostrich plumes, were carried beside the
canopy. The Pope, looking pale and
feeble, after being seated on the throne,
raised his right arm tremblingly and
gave his blessing.
Following are the names of the new
cardinals: Cdinai Gonzales came first,
followed by Cardinals Bernadou, Maz
zella and Giordani, in the order named.
Cardinal Gibbons's- sponsors were Car
dinals Meichers and azzella. As pre
sented each cardinal made his three
obeisances, then knelt and kissed the
cross on the Pope's slipper and next his
hand, in token of humiliation and obe
The seven new ecclesiastical princes
now a roached the throne in the order
that had been assigned them. The man
telletta or short red cape of each was
drawn up over the shoulders and gath
ered about the head, and as he knelt at
the foot of the Pope a =aster of cere
monies held above his head the broad,
red tasseled hat. Then the Pope, lean
ing forward, held his hands outspread
above the kneeling figure while he utter
ed a prayer in Latin.
After the prayer each newly made
Cardinal was embraced by the Pope and
when he had embraced all his colleagues
he proceeded to the chair which had
been assigned him and took his seat,
wearing his beretta, all the other Cardi
nals remaining standing and uncovered,
the idea thus illustrated being that the
new prince of the church, having re
ceived his hat from the hands of the
Pope, had become the equal of al the
others. When the last of the seven had
.nade the tour of the semicircle the Pope
rose and gave his pontifical blessing to
priests and people, after which he was
escorted from the hall and into the hall
of the paramenti by all the Cardinals.
Cardinal Gibbons received many con
~tultory telegrams and heaps of

A SMark and a *were one day left
