Today the Catholic Schools from around the diocese gathered at Hartman Arena to celebrate the Year of Faith. Just before mass we saw white smoke. And as mass ended we were able to watch live the announcement of the new pontiff. Though the video is grainy, you can hear the students chanting "Franciso." The sound was deafening. Please pray for our new pope Francis!
The election of a new pope is an exciting event and can be a once in a lifetime experience. To elect a new pope a "Conclave" is convened. This conclave is made up of cardinals who vote on the new pope. Once a 2/3rd's majority has been reached through secret ballot, the ballots are burned with white dye to indicate to public that a new pope has been elected. Below are some resources for more information:
