About the Consistory
In the Catholic Church, Cardinals constitute a special body (the Sacred College of Cardinals) whose primary responsibility is to elect a new pope. The Cardinals also serve as special advisors to the Holy Father — either individually or when they are called together to deal with issues of major importance.
