White Smoke! Pope has been elected

Now that a Pope has been elected, the Pontiff is being greeted by cardinals in the Sistine Chapel. The Pope will pray for a few moments in silence in the Pauline Chapel, before the Blessed Sacrament. Thousands of people have gathered in St. Peter's Square to witness history and to greet the Successor of St. Peter.
