Vatican City, February 18 - A crowd of as many as
40 cardinals gathered inside the Vatican early Monday for Lenten
prayers and meditations led by a possible contender to be the
next pope.
Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, president of the Pontifical
Council for Culture, has insisted that he wants to continue his
work as a scholar and is not interested in higher office.
But the record attendance in the Redemptoris Mater Chapel
in the Apostolic Palace for the service led by Ravasi suggests
other cardinals have begun the process of weighing the
contenders to fill the job that will be left by Pope Benedict
XVI.
One week ago, Benedict announced that for health reasons he
will resign on February 28.
A conclave of cardinals is expected to choose his successor
by mid-March.
