Conclave to begin April 18th
I have been reading the daily news bulletins from the Vatican Press Office. One of today's bulletins reports that the Conclave is set to begin on April 18th. On the morning of the 18th the Cardinal electors will celebrate a Mass in St. Peter's for the Election of a Pope. Then, first thing in the afternoon, they will enter the first session of the Conclave. Accordingly, I have begun scheduling Mass intentions in my parish "For the Cardinal Electors in Conclave" beginning the weekend of April 17th. We will continue offering that intention throughout the week of April 18th and we will see how long it takes, I guess!
