Conclave Watch - 2013

Tuesday, March 12, 2013 begins the conclave to elect Pope Benedict XVI's successor to be the current successor of St. Peter.  I have deliberately avoided the speculation on which cardinal will be elected, and especially the alleged "prophecy" of St. Malachy.  

Let us pray that God gives us the pope we need, and not necessarily the pope some people want.  I'm sure for some, that too can be one and the same - but the important factor is that the next Vicar of Christ is the right man for taking us beyond Pope Benedict XVI.  

Will the next pope continue the talks with Orthodoxy and SSPX?  If so, will these talks be successful?

Lord help us.  Lord guide us.

Amen.
