Papal Conclave to begin March 15th; will Irish Cardinals miss St. Patrick’s Day?


It seems the Vatican is considering the possibility of starting the process of electing a new pope on March 15th, All Caesarian references aside, would the Ides of March be an appropriate time to start the process? Seems ominous to me.

Of more importance perhaps is the fact that St. Patrick’s Day is on March 17th. Therefore any lobbying of the Irish Cardinals should begin now as you know they will want to be out in time for the parade.

Nothing like throwing a bit of a curve at an institution that relies on centuries of tradition. This will force the Church to think outside the mitre box and come up with something to deal with an uncommon situation.
