Consistory summary: the assignments

A reader makes a few points on the assignment of the titular churches.

Cardinal Rosales did NOT get S. Maria ai Monti, the titular of Cardinals Santos and Sin since it was erected in 1960.

The titles of S. Callisto and S. Onofrio remain vacant, despite nearly 500 years of heritage,while titles erected in the 1980s were all re-bestowed.

To a lesser degree, Cardinal Canizares Llovera did not get the title (S. Agostino) of the deceased Cardinal Gonzalez Martin (a predecessor in Toledo deceased since the last consistory).

The degree to which a particular title is linked to a particular see varies,but no such connections appear to have been honored this time?
