Electing a Pope!!

"But probably the most solemn, the most difficult, frightening (moment) is when you go with your ballot paper in your hand and hold it up in front of the altar and say, 'I call on the Lord Jesus, who will be my judge, to witness that I am voting for the one I believe to be worthy.'

Cardinal Napier said the above words about the 2005 papal conclave.

Catholic New Service has the entire article entitled "Prayer and Trembling:  "Cardinals Recount Experience of  Conclave" here.  It gives a fascinating view into the atmosphere and workings of the papal conclave.

Let's pray that all the cardinals will respond to the promptings of the Holy Spirit and vote for the pope the Lord wants us to have!!
