He said he traveled to Rome with about 80 others because, "it's a great honor for Denver and the archdiocese. He was with us for 10 years" as archbishop. "We've never had anyone associated with Denver become a cardinal before," he said. Pope John Paul included the pilgrims in his speeches and homilies over the weekend: "Starting today the new cardi- nals will have an even greater need of your spiritual support; accompany them always with your prayers as you have al- ready done," he said Feb. 21. Among the well-wishers gathering at the U.S. seminary Feb. 22 to honor Car- dinal George was his brother-in-law, James Cain, who read the first reading at the morning's papal Mass. The cardinal's sister, Margaret Cain, said no one was surprised her brother became a cardinal -- it's practically auto- matic for the archbishop of Chicago to join the College of Cardinals. But when he was named to Chicago after less than a year as archbishop of Portland, Ore., "that was a surprise," his sister said. She said she thought being a cardinal would not change her brother; qt'sjust a little perk." Cardinal George said the role of a cardinal, besides electing a new pope, was to be more closely associated with the universal Church, particularly through serving as a member of various Vatican congregadom and councils. "We are integrated into the Roman Curia as advisers," he said.
