Black smoke rising from the Sistine Chapel signaled to the world the Cardinals of the Catholic Church have yet to select a new Pope on the first day in conclave.
All 115 Electors will be secluded in the Santa Marta residence of the Vatican until Wednesday morning when the schedule calls for two additional votes. White smoke billowing from the chimney will signify the election of a new Pope.
Father Gregory Pilcher, of Holy Redeemer Catholic Church, sent along a graphic this morning for those interested in learning the process by which the Pope is elected.
