In this picture taken Sunday, Sept. 21, 2014, Pope Francis meets with Rev. Ernest Troshani Simoni during his Apostolic visit to Tirana. Rev. Simoni is among one of the 17 new Cardinals named by the pontiff Sunday, Oct. 9, 2016. Simoni, who turns 88 later this month, brought Francis to tears when he recounted his life story to the pope during Francis’ 2014 visit to Tirana: the two decades he spent imprisoned, tortured and sentenced to forced labor for refusing to speak out against the Catholic Church during Albania’s brutal communist rule.
