Intends to bring the most recent and hot topics to our users around the world. Striving to deliver the most recent updates.

Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle has quite recently been raised to the position of a cardinal-cleric, the most elevated request inside the College of Cardinals.

As indicated by Vatican News, Pope Francis selected Tagle in a crowd of people allowed to Archbishop Edgar Peña Parra, Substitute for General Affairs for the Secretariat of State, on April 14.

The new position, Cardinal-Bishop of San Felice da Cantalice a Centocelle, has made Tagle “equivalent in all regards to those Cardinals with suburbicarian Churches.”

It was in November 2012 at 55 years old that Tagle was named cardinal-minister of San Felice da Cantalice a Centocelle. He was introduced the next year.

Pope Francis advanced 62-year-old Tagle as the new Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples or Propaganda Fide in December 2019 to succeed Cardinal-cleric Fernando Filoni.

The arrangement came around eight years after he was raised to cardinal by Pope-Emeritus Benedict XVI.

At 55 years of age Tagle as of now took an interest in one conference, which is the social affair of cardinals from around the globe to choose a Pope after Pope Benedict surrendered in 2012.

The said meeting chose Argentina’s Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, S.J., who picked the name “Francis.”

Past posts

It was in October 2011 that Pope-Emeritus Benedict XVI delegated then Imus Bishop Tagle as Manila ecclesiastical overseer to succeed Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales.

It very well may be reviewed that Tagle was appointed minister in February 1982 and was blessed a religious administrator by the late Jaime Cardinal Sin, a previous Manila diocese supervisor, in December 2001.

He held a few positions, including minister and profound chief of Tahanan ng Mabuting Pastol in Tagaytay City in Cavite from 1983 to 2011.

At the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), Tagle was executive of the Episcopal Commission on the Doctrine of the Faith.

A year ago, he was reappointed as leader of Caritas Internationale which is a confederation of Catholic foundations from various nations.


He was given a few honors, remembering Doctor for Humanities honoris causa from different instructive organizations in the Philippines and abroad.

In 2013, he was named a “Remarkable Manilan.”


Tagle’s evaluation school and secondary school training was at the St. Andrew’s School in Parañaque City. He contemplated religious philosophy and theory at the Ateneo de Manila University, Loyola School of Theology and San Jose Seminary.

He was at the Catholic University of America for additional investigations, especially Sacred Theology.
