On Monday, 1 September 2014, Cardinal Paolo Sardi, Cardinal-Deacon of S. Maria Ausiliatrice in Via Tuscolana, Cardinal-Patron of  the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of St. John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta (Italy), turned 80, and therefore, according to the rules written in the Apostolic Constitution Universi Dominici Gregis, he lost his right to vote in any future conclave.

Cardinal Paolo Sardi was made Cardinal-Deacon of S. Maria Ausiliatrice in Via Tuscolana by Pope Benedict XVI in the 2010 Consistory of Cardinals on 20 November 2010, the third Consistory of his pontificate. Cardinal Sardi was made a Cardinal in honour of his position as the Patron of  the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of St. John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta, also known as the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, one of the most prominent and important charity and public action arm of the Church, the direct and current successor of the Knights Hospitallers established during the era of the Crusades, a position which he held from 2009 to the present day.

May God bless His Eminence Cardinal Sardi with a blessed old age and health. May he remain strong in the faith and hopefully can perhaps still continue to work great graces and good works of love and peace as he continues to minister to the people of God through his patronage of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta. We also pray for the success of the actions and the charities of this faithful order of the Church.
