Conclave to elect new pope set to begin
"The Cardinal Angelo Sodano calls for love, unity and cooperation with the next pontiff." They pray for guidance in choosing the next pope during a pre-conclave Mass. There are 115 cardinals and they will choose the next spiritual leader of the Roman Catholic Church. The Cardinals don't really have to vote on Tuesday but probably will, a Vatican spokesman says. I think this article is interesting even though it doesn't really have anything to do with me. I am more of a visual person and the photography that goes along with the story is a tremendous help to the tell the story visually. I just think that a tradition as old as the Pope is an interesting topic and thought it would be good to share with the class.
