CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of Cardinal Jorge Urosa Savino of Caracas, Venezuela. The retiring cardinal, who has clashed repeatedly with the government of President Nicolas Maduro, had submitted his resignation last August upon reaching the age of 75.

As apostolic administrator of the Caracas archdiocese, to serve until a new archbishop is named, the Holy Father appointed Cardinal Baltazar Enrique Porras Cardozo of Merida.
