Vatican City, March 11 - Cardinals gathered at the
Vatican on Monday for the last of the general congregations
meetings before the start of the conclave to elect Benedict
XVI's successor on Tuesday.
The general congregations, which started last Monday,
enable the cardinals to get to know each other better and share
ideas about what characteristics the next leader of the Catholic
Church should have.
Over 150 cardinals are taking part in the congregations,
but only 115 will participate in the conclave because only those
under 80 are eligible to vote.
Over 100 cardinals made speeches at the general
congregations last week, with only few speaking more than once.
Many had still not had the chance to make an address before
proceedings resumed just after 9.30am Italian time Monday.
