MANILA, Philippines — Aside from Cardinal Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle, the Philippines will now have its second active cardinal.

Pope Francis announced the appointment of Capiz Archbishop Jose Advincula during his Sunday Angelus at the Vatican yesterday, according to CBCPNews.

The pontiff mentioned Advincula as one of the 13 new cardinals-elect who would be elevated at a consistory on Nov. 28.

The 68-year-old Advincula would become the Philippines’ ninth cardinal, following Tagle, Orlando Quevedo, Gaudencio Rosales, Jose Sanchez, Ricardo Vidal, Jaime Sin, Julio Rosales and Rufino Santos.

Only Rosales, Quevedo and Tagle are still living.

Rosales and Quevedo retired as cardinals upon reaching the age of 80. Tagle is the only active Filipino member of the papal conclave at present.

Advincula was born on March 30, 1952 and became a priest of Capiz on April 14, 1976 before serving as bishop of San Carlos in Negros Occidental.

He was appointed as archbishop of Capiz in 2011.
