Chicago Archbishop Blase Cupich was awarded one of the Roman Catholic Church's most prestigious titles next to the papacy Sunday, when Pope Francis announced in St. Peter's Square Sunday that he will elevate Chicago's church leader to the rank of cardinal.

Cupich will receive his red hat in Rome Nov. 19, the day before the church's Year of Mercy ends. The elevation means he will have a vote in future papal elections.
