Sistine Chapel Closes Ahead of Conclave
They’re getting closer – though there is no date yet – to electing a new Pope to lead the Catholic Church.
FOX News Radio’s Simon Owen has the latest from our European bureau:
The Vatican hasn’t set a date for the Papal election yet, the Conclave. The cardinals haven’t all arrived yet – at the last count, five were still en route. So, in the meantime, the cardinals who are there are holding a second day of preliminary meetings.

The Sistine Chapel, where the conclave takes place, has now closed for pre-conclave preparations. The last time this happened, that work included installing a false floor to hide anti-bugging devices.
