Rorate Caeli has a very brief, non-explanatory post about a new consistory of 5 new Cardinals that it calls Stacking the Deck. Despite lack of explanation, I have little reason to doubt what they are implying here. Anyone know anything about these 5?

Stacking the Deck: Francis creates 5 new Cardinals

He announced it today, the consistory will be on June 28. The deck is getting stacked:

They are Archbishop Omella of Barcelona, Spain; Bishop Arborelius of Stockholm, Sweden; Archbishop Zerbo, of Bamako, Mali; Apostolic Vicar Bp. Ling, of Pakse, Laos; and, bizarrely enough, from the Archdiocese of San Salvador, El Salvador, it's Auxiliary Bishop, Bp. Rosa Chavez (the Archbishop, named by Benedict XVI in 2008, is not a Cardinal).
