 . in pectore:
(also 'in petto') A latin term meaning 'in the chest'. The Pope can appoint a Cardinal 'in pectore', meaning that he does not reveal his name (eg, because of the risk of persecution). The person does not become a Cardinal until his name is revealed publicly by the Pope, but at that later time, he takes his seniority as if he had been appointed when the 'in pectore' announcement was made previously.
