Cardinals Begin Pope Vote on Tuesday

The Roman Catholic cardinals, who gathered Friday at the Vatican to discuss the church’s many problems, have settled on Tuesday as the date when they will seclude themselves inside the Sistine Chapel to determine the next pope, according to an email transmitted by the Vatican's press office. As of now, there is no clear favorite to succeed Pope Benedict but it is likely that a new pontiff will be elected by the end of next week.
