It was dinner time in the Philippines when the Pope announced Orlando Quevedo, would become a cardinal. In fact, it was Manila Card. Luis Antonio Tagle who broke the news to the skeptic archbishop of Cotabato. The feeling that arose with him was not one of joy or honor, instead he described it as "being crowned with thorns."
"I would like to be as I was before, simple, approachable, no formality, and just go out to the people. I would like to continue doing that and particularly going to the mountains where the poor are.”
