    Background: VATICAN CITY

    Eighteen new Cardinals were created by Pope John Paul in the Vatican on February 2. In a colourful ceremony, the Pope bestowed on each the Cardinal's red biretta, a square four-peaked hat, before a 6,000-strong audience of churchmen, diplomats and invited guests. The new members of the Catholic Church's Sacred College brought it's number of 138 Cardinals, 120 of whom are eligible to vote in the election of the next Pope. The new Cardinals included Polish Primate Jozef Glemp, Lebanese Maronite Patriarch Antoine Khcraiche, and the Soviet Union's first resident Cardinal, 88-year-old Julijans Vaivoids. The Archbishop of Paris, Jean-Marie Lustiger, a converted Jew, and the outspoken anti-nuclear campaigner Joseph Bernardin of Chigo, were also created Cardinals.Possibly the most significant elevation was that of Jozef Gelmp who 19 months ago became head of the Church in the Pontiffs homeland of Poland. Cardinal Glemp has led the Polish Church through difficult months of negotiation with the Communist authorities since he succeeded the late Stefan Wyszynski on July 7, 1981.
