    Chaput not on list of 22 new cardinals

    The Catholic church has 22 new cardinals, but Philadelphia’s Archbishop Charles Chaput isn’t one of them.

    CBS3 reports Pope Benedict XVI didn’t name the 67-year-old to a cardinal position, though two Americans did make the cut.

    Rocco Palma of Whispers in the Loggia says Chaput’s time could still come. He’s only been a Philadelphia bishop for a few months.
