Chicago’s Francis Cardinal George celebrated Mass Sunday at the Basilica of St. Bartholomew in Rome.  He asked for prayers as he prepares for the conclave that will select the new Pope.

“Perhaps the will of God isn’t entirely clear to many of us,” the Cardinal said.  “So I ask you for your prayers to help the Holy Spirit be present among us, to open our hearts and our minds to what is the will of God for his people throughout the world.”

The conclave begins Tuesday, when the Cardinal electors will gather in the Sistine Chapel to vote for a successor to Pope Benedict XVI.

    Great Report Dina and very accurate! You obviously did your homework to prepare for this. Looking forward to more this week.! WGN-TV has been the leader in Papal Conclave coverage in my opinion. I am so glad that WGN sent you to Rome to cover this historic event with such precision. Keep up the good work!
