The conclave will be a very interesting process. I am very curious to see how long it will take. I can't imagine it's easy getting everyone to agree on the same person.

I think the longest to date took 3 years.... Although, JP II recently changed the rules, so that in the case of a deadlocked Conclave, instead of the usual 2/3 plus one majority needed, the new rules allow a Pope to be elected with 50% plus one of the Cardinals in agreement.... However, I think the Cardinals still have to deliberate for at least 2 weeks if there is a deadlock before they are allowed to institute that new rule....

Wow. That's a long time to basically put yourself in seclusion to determine the new Pope. I just saw the funeral will be Friday.

Well, if my son keeps waking me up at about 3am when he is sick (4am ET), I will be able to tell you all about it. Haha.

Just remember to watch for the smoke. Black smoke means a deadlock on picking the pope and white smoke means that there is a new pope. So much symbolism and tradition it's pretty amazing stuff. Most of these traditions are based off of original practices, hundreds if not thousands of years old.

John Paul II was the first non-Italian pope in 455 years, needless to say, this broke a long chain. It will be interesting to see if they decide once again to go with a non-Italian as a "transitional pope" or if they indeed go back to something more traditional.
