Conclave begins

I’m betting the tone of the Conclave will be a little different than the lock-ins the church youth groups hold.
As I’ve said, I’m not Catholic but I do have a certain respect for the Papacy. As a protestant I suppose you could liken my feelings towards the Papacy to those of an American towards the English crown. You want to make sure that (in the words of Homer Simpson) “the King of England [can’t] just walk in here any time he wants and start shoving you around” but you can recognize their power, influence and majesty.
May God guide the Cardinals in their selection of a new Pope.
