Cardinal Anders Arborelius, OCD, is Bishop of Stockholm. After converting to Catholicism as a young adult, he studied in Lund, Brussels, and Rome, and lived for nearly 20 years in a contemplative hermitage. He was appointed Bishop of Stockholm by John Paul II in 1998, becoming the first ethnic Swede to occupy the see since the Protestant Reformation. In 2017 Pope Francis elevated Arborelius to the cardinalate and appointed him to the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity. He is the author of several books on Carmelite figures and spirituality.
