Bishop Corriveau, waiting for the white smoke
It is anyone's guess who will end up as Pope, but in North America, Catholics a praying for a leader who will take care of many issues which include a cleanup of sexual abuse scandals and making the church more relevant in a secular world.
Much of those hopes now fall on the shoulders of the Princes of the Church, the Cardinals, who are in the Vatican, the Sistine Chapel, casting their ballots on who will lead the Congregation, a congregation that consists of 1.2 billion people.
Once the Pope is elected, white smoke will flow from the chimney of the Chapel.
Bishop John Corriveau has been following the developments closely in Rome.
He oversees the Okanagan and Nelson Diocese and he joined Chris Walker in studio.
