That still doesn't answer the more important question of how one becomes a nuncio, Grey!

You get appointed by the pope, usually the pope picks the archbishop of the country the nuncio would represent.

@CGP Grey I think it would have been worth noting that since 1962, the norm has been that when a priest is made a cardinal, he is also ordained a bishop at the same time unless he is already old enough to be a "retired" cardinal anyway (80 years old or older). Other than that, this entire explanation of church hierarchy is amazing, especially considering it was made by someone who seems to be an atheist.

Hey Grey, how are you? So, I'm very new to your channel, though instantly I started loving your videos, not only because they're straight to the point and short but also have QUALITY. I'm from Brazil, and I'd like so much to watch a new video of yours with something regarding my country, as you did with the UK and Canada. Cheers, have a nice day whenever you're reading this comment (very unlikely)!

Under Canon law since the early 20th century, only a bishop can become a cardinal. However, there is a special clause for papal dispensation that allows the pope to make anyone a cardinal (man, woman, clergy or lay-person). So, with papal dispensation, not only do you not have to be a bishop, you don't even have to be a priest and don't even have to be a man. There was some discussion in the Vatican in the 80's about whether or not to make Mother Teresa a cardinal, which would have been allowed under this dispensation. Supposedly the pope asked her if she wanted to be a Cardinal and she declined. In theory, this would allow anybody to become a Cardinal, and in theory, allow anyone to become Pope.

I've never heard about the possibility of women becoming cardinals with dispensation, but even if it's true, it does not really affect who can become pope. Remember requirement #2 as listed in the main video: "Be a Man." This is because the pope is, by definition, the Bishop of Rome, and bishops, being a step up from priests, must be male. According to the Catholic Church (at least), priesthood is an intrinsically male role (it has to with how priests perform sacraments _in persona Christi_ (in the person of Christ), but that's a story for another time), so no woman can ever be validly ordained a priest, and, by extension, no woman can be validly ordained a bishop either. Since the pope is a bishop, he must meet at least the bare minimum requirements for becoming a bishop (being a catholic man), so even if a woman could be made a cardinal, there will still never be a female pope.

Imaging trying to become a pope after 40 years being an cardinal and/or a bishop but then some junior comes who just became a cardinal after 20 orso years, and takes your thrown from you. And now he is the pope and is making new rules to make it easier for everyone to become a cardinal and eventually a pope,
and slowly destroys the establishment from inside, all before your eyes.
Now i think about, this should be happening, come on new cardinals who`re trying to destroy the establishments for us.

When a priest is made a cardinal he is a cardinal-deacon. 
AJI Pi Guy
AJI Pi Guy - 6 måneder siden
I almost corrected you (the OP) on that, then realized that you're not entirely wrong. Priests who become cardinals over the age of 80 (which is the "retirement age" for cardinals where they are then no longer able to elect a new pope) are often made cardinal-deacons (low-ranking cardinals) and remain priests rather than becoming bishops. However, a priest _can_ be made a cardinal when he is younger than 80, but the norm since 1962 has been to ordain him as a bishop when this happens, so then he might end up ranking as a cardinal-priest or cardinal-bishop. Yeah, it's confusing.

Quickest way to becoming pope: be friends with the current one and don't be hated by the other cardinals. It's a wonder they ever pick a new one. I bet that's way they're sequestered. If it was like the US congress trying to pass a law, nothing would every get done.
SomeExtraNotes - 8 år siden
The use of the Papal word as infallible doctrine must be explicitly stated and has only been used three times in the churches history. One of those times was to affirm the divinity of Jesus, I think you can at least agree that the divinity of Jesus is important to most Catholics, and for that matter Christians. My point is that the pope can't sneeze doctrine into his fruit-loops the way most people think. His every word isn't doctrine.

SomeExtraNotes - 8 år siden
Considering how quickly you conveyed the information you did a great job, and I think you did so with a reasonable amount of respect, but I do have one tiny thing. The pope doesn't have whims, and if he does he certainly doesn't use them to do something as dramatic as raising a priest or anyone else to the cardinalship. Popes tend only to act only after great and usually documented contemplation. People already hopelessly misunderstand papal infalliblility and that feeds right into that.
