Cardinals Over 75 Years Who Are Still Not Fully Retired.

As the prior post for Lluis Martinez Sistach retirement as the Archbishop of Barcelona highlighted, Cardinals (and for that matter Archbishops) are supposed to start their retirement process on their 75th birthday.

By Canon Law, #401 §1 all archbishops have to tender their resignations to the pope, in writing, when they turn 75. When the pope actually accepts the resignation, of course, is up to the pope. Sometimes it is ‘immediate’ and at others, like with these two, it can be a couple (to a few) years later. This is perfectly normal.

But there are exceptions. Here is the current list of ‘Retirement Pending’ cardinals — the key ones highlighted.

All this does is change the Cardinal Occupation stats. Nothing else.
