|Cardinals wear red hats to symbolise their readiness to shed their blood for their faith|
Pope Benedict XVI created six new, non-European cardinals today.
Analysts say it is unusual for the Pope to select only non-Europeans.
The Pope has said his choices aim to show "the Church is a Church of all peoples, [and] speaks in all languages".
... The Church estimates less than a quarter of the world's Catholics live in Europe.
I am always a bit wary of those who are willing to shed their blood for their faith. Too often what they mean is that they are willing to shed someone else's blood.
