On Saturday, February 23, 2013,  92-Year Old Belgian Cardinal Deacon Julien Ries [dob: April 19, 1920] died. He created in February 2012, after he had turned 80, was noted historian and academic. He is the 2nd over 90 cardinal to die this month.

This is the 5th change to the College in 2013, and the third death. It was March 9 before we saw two deaths in 2012.

The College is down to 208 (still quite high), with the electors at 118 — two short of the magic ‘120’ mark.
