CARDINALS

Pope Paul VI created 144 Cardinals from many nations, making the College of Cardinals more international than it had ever been. He also set a limit of 120 to the number of papal electors, who must be under 80 years of age. Among the Cardinals he created were his successors, Albino Luciani (John Paul I) and Karol Wojtyła (John Paul II)
