Sista hälsning innan konklavet samlas...

Kardinal Timothy Dolan är en flitig användare av sociala medier. För en kort stund sen lade han ut ännu en hälsning till sina Facebook följare. 
"Greetings again from Rome, the Eternal City, the city of Saints Peter and Paul!"

Han har även hunnit uppdatera sin blogg "The Gospel in the Digital Age" där hans senaste inlägg publicerat idag handlar om reflektioner inför kvällens konklav. Kardinal Dolan skriver: 

The veteran cardinals tell me that the conclave is almost like a retreat.  We of course concelebrate Mass every morning to begin the day, and pray the liturgy of the hours together.  Obviously, we can visit and talk with each other at St. Martha’s House during our meals and brief time off between the actual voting, but, I’m told the actual hours in the Sistine Chapel, carried out scrupulously according to the traditional protocol, are done in an atmosphere of silence and prayer; it’s almost, the old-timers tell me, like a liturgy.


...och avslutar med: 
Watch for the white smoke!  I’ll try to be in touch as soon as I can after the conclave ends.
