Conclave to Elect New Pope Begins Tuesday, March 12

When the Cardinal enters the Conclave to begin to elect the new pope on Tuesday,  March 12, the Cardinals will follow a regular schedule.
They will live in the Domus Sanctae Marthae, not far from the Sistine Chapel where the Cardinals will vote for the new pope beginning on Tuesday afternoon.
The Arlington Diocese website has a page dedicated to the Conclave with many helpful resources including links to Catholic news websites.  The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops website has a page called "Inside the Conclave" with a full-color graphic on the different elements of the Conclave.

If you use Facebook, you may want to "like" the Facebook pages for Vatican Radio or Vatican News to receive regular updates.  You can also follow Vatican News on Twitter.
Let us pray for all of the Cardinals and the whole Church as we look forward to the election of our new Holy Father.
