Westminster archbishop emeritus Cormac Murphy O'Connor, right, pauses in the doorway in rain as he arrives for a meeting of cardinals summoned by Pope Benedict XVI for a day of reflection at the Vatican, Friday, Nov. 19, 2010, the day before a ceremony to create 24 new cardinals. The top agenda, religious freedom, grew remarkably timely given China's planned ordination Saturday of a bishop who doesn't have the Pope's approval. The Vatican warned China that efforts at reconciliation would be set back if bishops loyal to the pope were forced to attend the ordination. The Vatican said such actions would constitute "grave violations of freedom of religion and freedom of conscience.'' (AP Photo/Alessandra Tarantino)
