Of the current College of 219 cardinals 95 share a birthday with another cardinal.

There are, however, none who share the exact same birthday. There are 3 incidents of cardinals who are one year apart. The largest gap is that of 30 years between Castrillón Hoyos born on July 4, 1929 and Sturla Berhouet born July 4, 1959.

There are 43 shared birthdates — starting January 1.  Meisner was born on Christmas Day BUT he does not share that with any other cardinal. There are 4 cardinals who were born on March 18 — from 1924 to 1935. There are 7 instances of three cardinals sharing the same birthdate — one of them being July 4, U.S. Independence Day, though none of those 3 cardinals is American.

February, the shortest month, has 7 shared birthdates — the most for any month. May only has one.

So here is a list for your enjoyment and edification.
