Saint Gregory The Illuminator.

Here's the Archbishop of Palermo Saverio

Cincotta, this is his third Conclave.

Cardinal Masao Takada, archivist

and librarian of the Holy Roman Church.

We can see Sidi Kamara,

followed by Koma Mbosou.

As you know the African continent

has never... Here's Ricardo Aguilar,

who could be the first

South American Pope.

And the Cardinal from Sri Lanka,

Don Somasiry.

We'll try approaching

Cardinal Massucci for a word.

Cardinal, could we have a statement?

Obviously they can't

answer their questions.

And now we can see

the Syrian Patriarch of Antioch,

Simon Al Suryani, Prefect of the

the Congregation of Eastern Churches.

Here's who we're all waiting for:

the Vatican spokesman,

Marcin Rajski is approaching us,

- ...maybe to ask us...

- Thank you very much.

- We must ask you to leave now.

- He asks us to leave,

but thanks the press.

- Maybe a long shot of the Sistine

Chapel. - No, thank you.

He thanks us very much,

but our work ends here.

We can't get that shot.

All we know Cardinal Dean Gregori,

the favored of the Conclave.

From this moment 108 cardinal electors

will be isolated from the rest of the world

...and can have no contact

with the outside.

- Saint Joseph.

- Pray for us.

- Saint John the Baptist.

- Pray for us.

- All the Saint Patriarchs and Prophets.

- Pray for us.

- St. Peter and Paul.

- Pray for us.

- Saint Andrew.

- Pray for us.

Gregori, what do we do?

- Has the power failed?

- What else could it be?

- Please, stay calm.

- Any candles?

- They're not allowed. - Why?

- Because they ruin the frescoes.

Do they know outside

that we're in darkness?

Of course they do...

...and they are already fixing it.

- Who's that? What happened?

- It's cardinal Brummer.

I fell.

It's nothing, I'm already getting up.

- Are you alright?

- Yes, thank you.

- Is everything alright?

- I said:

Are you okay, Brummer?

- I didn't hurt myself.

- Your back, ankle?

- I'm not hurt at all!

- Are you sure?

Please, try not to move around.

Let's return to our seats.

Pick things up...







- Where does Gregori stand?

- 13.

Gregori - 18, Bikila - 11.

- Bikila.

- Gregori - 21.

Aguilar - 18, and Bikila - 15.


- Aguilar.

- Just a moment!



The smoke's black, the Pope

still hasn't been elected.

The smoke is white!

The thousands of faithful

here in St. Peter's Square...

...joyfully applaud the news.

But the bells aren't ringing.

Maybe the smoke only looked white...

I can hear my colleagues

saying the smoke is black.

The smoke, actually...

Yes, the smoke is black.

It's black. Nothing doing.

The smoke will last a while

because, as well as the ballots,

their personal notes

will be burned too.

Nothing regarding the Conclave

can filter through to the outside.

Another black smoke signal.

The cardinals in the Conclave still

haven't managed to elect a Pope.

A second vote will be cast

this afternoon.

We don't know if the favorites are

still Gregori, Aguilar and Bikila...




Do you accept your canonical

election as Supreme Pontiff?

Do you accept your canonical

election as Supreme Pontiff?



- Holiness...

- What are you doing?

- What happens now?

- You can just give a blessing...

Or, as our deceased

beloved Pope...

...did the first time,

address the faithful with a speech.

Dear brothers and sisters...

Eminentissimum ac reverendissimum...

Help me.

I can't do this.

I can't do this!

Holy Father...

Holy Father...

You mustn't worry.

By bestowing this charge God

also gives you help to accomplish it...

...and the strength to sustain

the weight of this great responsibility.

Would you like something hot?

Herbal tea?

You could retire to your apartments.

And when you're ready,

I'll take you to the balcony.


The Conclave has indeed

elected the Holy Father...

...who, aware of this

great responsibility...

...feels the need to retite in prayer.

This unusual gesture

is also an act of humility,

which we are sure

you will want to respect.


I believe I express the sentiments

of my colleagues worldwide.

We respect His Holiness' will,

all we ask is his name. Only that!

Tell us if it's one of this 8.

Aguilar? Gregori?

- Bikila? - We believe...

- Todorov?

...within a few hours,

the Pontiff will introduce himself

to the faithful from the balcony.

At that point you also will meet him...

...and we will celebrate

the new Pontificate together.

Thank you.

- Do you feel any pain?

- No.

- Headache?

- Yes... no.

How is your blood pressure usually?

- Good.

- I was sure.

I was sure.

Good morning!

Good day!

We're going to Borgo Pio

for breakfast.

Borgo Pio?

There's a place where they make

delicious cream-filled doughnuts.

Then I'd like to take them

to the Quirinale Museum.

There's a wonderful
