American Cardinals Getting Support As Papal Conclave Begins
Description:It was the tell-tale sign the election of a new pope is imminent: the rich maroon draperies dressing a window, smack in the middle of Saint Peter’s Basilica.
PIX 11 saw the window on Monday, ready on the eve of the secret conclave that will pick the 266th leader of the Roman Catholic Church. The new pontiff will be presented to the world, wearing his white vestments, once 115 Cardinals select him with a vote that must be a 2/3rds majority.(1:35)
