Rome, March 11 - The Catholic Church should have a
new pope within days, according to Archbishop of Vienna
Christoph Schoenborn, one of the cardinals who will take part in
the conclave that starts Tuesday.
"In a few days we will have the new Holy Father," said
Schoenborn.
"Without betraying the pontifical secret, I'm not doing a
VatiLeaks, I can say that I have encountered a spirit of
fraternity I've rarely experienced in this week of meetings
between cardinals," he added referring to the pre-conclave
'general congregations'.
The conclave to elect the 266th pontiff follows the shock
resignation of Benedict XVI, who on February 28 became the first
pope to abdicate in 600 years.
Benedict, 85, stepped down after announcing on February 11
that he no longer had the mental and physical strength to lead
the world's 1.2 billion Catholics.
