Cardinals could set date to elect new pope

Cardinals of the Catholic Church meet at 3:30 a.m. ET and then again at 11 a.m. ET Monday, at which time they may set a date for the conclave to elect the next pope.
Pope Benedict XVI vacated the papacy just four days ago, citing ailing health. He is 85.
He was the first pope to resign in 600 years.

    They'll elect a spry 74yo now. Some guy who can barely eat a bowl of soup, without slobbering himself.

    I have been a devout, ;practicing Catholic my entire life. Silencing the American Catholic Bishops prior to the Conclave is just the latest in the series of nightmares I have witnessed in my Church. Currently I have Catholics who go to Church once a year on Easter telling me I should be defending The Church, not attacking it. Unfortunately, I never believed that denial or covering up scandal is like Jesus. We are supposed to be like Jesus. Are these Cardinals like Jesus?

    @ Devout Catholic, Is any religion representative of God and his word? Yes the bible has been tampered with (adding, subtracting and even twisting his words) but if following Jesus' example and Gods commands is what you desire with all your mind, heart, and soul ... you will search for it as tho you're searching for gold.
