Catholics still waiting for a new Pope
The Catholic Church still does not have a Pope. The 115 cardinals who went into the Sistine chapel yesterday to elect a new Pope didn't unanimously agree on a new man to lead the church so they sent up black smoke from the chimney to signal their disagreement.
Black smoke was seen coming from the chimney again this morning indicating inconclusive ballot on the second day of deliberation. All the cardinals will remain locked inside Sistine Chapel until one candidate receives at least 77 votes.
Meanwhile thousands of faithful Catholics are waiting in the rain outside the Sistine Chapel to hear the good news - the election of a new Pope.
