Cardinal Kasper against 'rushing' conclave


Berlin, March 4 - German Cardinal Walter Kasper
said Monday he was opposed to rushing the conclave of cardinals
to elect a new pope.
"We need time to get to know one another," Kasper told
German daily Stuttgarter Zeitung. "A papal election is not
something you should rush".
Kasper, president emeritus of the Pontifical Council for
Promoting Christian Unity, was among over 100 cardinals
assembled in Rome this week for a series of pre-conclave
meetings known as general congregations.
Traditionally a conclave begins 15 days after the death of
a pope.
In one of his final acts as pontiff, Benedict XVI issued a
decree allowing the conclave to begin sooner since he announced
his resignation on February 11 and cardinals had ample time to
meet and come to Rome.
The cardinals have yet to determine when the conclave will
take place.
