The Conclave Starts


Today the Conclave has begun. The Cardinals made an oath of secrecy which if they break will result in excommunication.  Archbishop Marini then exclaimed the "Omnes Extra" which is a call for all those who are not Cardinals to leave.

After the ballots, black smoke was release indicating that no decision has been reached.  The Church remains in Sede Vacante

I will update this blog post as more is learned.
