Cardinals return to the Sistine Chapel

Day two of voting for new pope continues

Cardinals return to the Sistine Chapel

Vatican City, March 13 - The 115 cardinals gathered to elect the successor of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI met again in the Sistine Chapel Wednesday morning as the second day of voting began. From Wednesday on, eligible cardinals will vote four times daily until a candidate has a two-thirds majority in the conclave - or 77 votes. Black smoke rising from the chimney on the roof of the Sistine Chapel on Tuesday evening indicated that the day's voting was inconclusive. Despite rain and chilly weather, crowds are gathered in St. Peter's square, waiting to see white smoke and hear the peal of St. Peter's bells, which will announce a new pope has been elected.
