 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Cardinal Vicar
Until 1260 the vicars were chosen from among the cardinals; the first vicar taken from among the bishops in the vicinity of Rome was the Dominican Thomas Fusconi de Berta, episcopus Senensis (Moroni, Eubel).

This fact distinguishes the cardinal vicar as he is called, for the designation is not an official title, from all other vicars-general in the world, and gives him his peculiar legal position.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Cardinal
The cardinals were, therefore, from a very early period, assistants of the pope in his liturgical functions, in the care of the poor, the administration of papal finances and possessions, and the synodal disposition of important matters.
Inimical persecution of a cardinal, personal injury to, or imprisonment of, him, are counted high treason (crimen læsæ majestatis); not only the principals, but also those intellectually responsible for the wrong (originators, participants, auxiliaries), and their male descendants incur the canonical penalties of infamy, confiscation, loss of testamentary rights and civil offices, and excommunication.

Most Cardinals are either Archbishops of the largest dioceses in their countries or regions, or the heads of the dicasteries of the Roman Curia (the Pope's Ministers of State, if you like).
Of course, the singular role that the Cardinals play is that of electing a new Pontiff when the See of Peter is vacant (see Electing a Pope).
Because the Cardinals are called to help the Pope in his leadership of the Church, they are also linked in a special way to the Diocese of Rome.

In this pair of cardinal virtues is exhibited a not very precise portion of Greek psychology, which the Scholastics have perpetuated in the division of appetites as concupiscible and irascible, the latter member having for its characteristic that it must seek its purpose by an arduous endeavour against obstacles.
Thomas found four cardinal virtues in common recognition and he tried to give a systematic account of the group as far as it admitted of logical systematization.
Within limits the cardinal virtues may be said to be a scientifically arranged group, helpful to clearness of aim for a man who is struggling after well-ordered conduct in a disordered world, which is not prudent, just, brave, temperate.

Cardinal Francis Arinze, speaking at a news conference about a new Vatican report on liturgical practices at Mass, was asked whether "unambiguously proabortion" Catholic politicians should be denied Communion, though that issue was not addressed in the report.
Arinze's comments, which were reported by the National Catholic Reporter and other media outlets based at the Vatican, are significant not only because of his rank in the Vatican, but because he is a church leader seen as a possible successor to Pope John Paul II.
The Vatican has not directly addressed the issue of Communion for Catholic politicians who support abortion rights, while the general practice among American clergy is to leave eligibility for Communion up to individual Catholics to decide.

In your case, it is a combination of having Patriarch Emeritus Cardinal Daoud already in representation of the Catholic Syrians (and Cardinal Prefect of the Oriental Congregation to boot!) and the fact that your current Patriarch took over in 2001 after the consistory for that year.
