ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Pope Benedict on Sunday told the six prelates newly elevated to the high rank of cardinal that all Roman Catholic Church leaders should shun the "worldly logic of power" and stick to spreading the gospel message. The pope presided at a solemn Mass in St Peter's Basilica with the six men from the United States, India, Nigeria, the Philippines, Lebanon and Colombia the day after they became cardinals at a ceremony known as a consistory. The new cardinals are American Archbishop James Michael Harvey, Baselios Cleemis Thottunkal, a major archbishop of the Syro-Malankara rite in India, Archbishop Ruben Salazar Gomez of Bogota, Archbishop Luis Antonio Tagle of Manila, Beatitude Bechara Boutros Rai, patriarch of the Maronite Catholic Church in Lebanon, and Archbishop John Olorunfemi Onaiyekan of Abuja. Reflecting the diversity of the new cardinal prayers were read in Arabic, Hindi, Yoruba and Tagalog as well as English, French and Italian. By omitting Europeans from his choice of new cardinals, Benedict chipped away at the old continent's domination of the elite group that will one day elect his successor.
