As we all know, the search for the next Pope had begun after the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI last February 28, 2013. The 115 Cardinals or as they we’re called “Princes of The Church” locked them selves at Sistine Chapel starting the so-called Conclave to secretly elect a new Pope believing that a holy entity or “holy ghost” is guiding them.
Just one question, Why vote many times if a holy ghost is guiding them?! Why not just in one voice call the name of the so-called next pope if there really is a guidance from above. 🙂
Well to all who are curious about the Conclave event, the below image will explain how to make a pope.
So let the search begin!
