McGarty Talks About Pope Elections Tonight At Viterbo
A well-known La Crosse priest planned a lecture for tonight about electing a pope...halfway expecting that cardinals would not be finished with the election yet.
But you can still hear Monsignor Bernard McGarty tonight, and find out how he thinks the election of Pope Francis compares to others during the history of the Catholic Church. McGarty was surprised at how quickly cardinals reached a decision last week...two days, instead of the five days he expected. And McGarty guesses that many cardinals who are now too old to vote on a pope may have talked a bit about the cardinal from Argentina before the conclave began. McGarty's talk starts at 7 o'clock tonight at the Viterbo Fine Arts Center.
