Electing a Pope

Weeks after the resignation of Benedict XVI, Cardinals from the Catholic Church gathered in Rome to choose a new pope. There was plenty of buzz about conclaves, interregnum and other words that aren’t part of our everyday vocabulary. So just how was the new pope elected?

I find it interesting how the Catholic church chooses its pope. I was interested to see who it was going to be. I actually see it kind of historic to have a Latin American and Jesuit pope. It is logical with Latin America making up such a large percentage of the world's Catholics that the pope would be from there.
