Why I separate "Cardinal" and "Archbishop" with comma instead of hyphen.[edit]

Even though it may be customary to name the (arch)bishop of certain dioceses to the cardinalate, such naming to the cardinalate is never required (other than the now-titular cardinalitial sees surrounding Rome). For example, in 1958 when Archbishop Albert Meyer was transferred from Milwaukee to Chicago, it was pointed out then that he would still be "Archbishop", because the making of a Cardinal is a separate appointment. He became a Cardinal in 1959. "Cardinal-Archbishop" is just a popular term for a Cardinal who is CONCURRENTY the bishop of an archdiocese; such a bishop, if he becomes a cardinal, would be a cardinal priest, the usual practice for the bishop of a diocese outside the province of Rome. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:20, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
