Canon Law Made Easy ^ | March 5, 2013 | Cathy Caridi, J.C.L.

Q: I read the article “Canon Law and the Upcoming Conclave” and it was really helpful, but I have another question now. The 15-day rule has now been revised by Pope Benedict, correct? If so, has he given a specific time/number of days before a conclave can begin, or no? –Samantha

Procedure be darned ... they started looking when they knew he was done.

I don't think you can be close to another human being for any length of time without learning to "read" that person (ask any husband and wife .... ask any kid about what he thinks about his mother having eyes in the back of her head, ask any ... you get the picture)

I think the search/discussion started at least a year ago.

I should have gotten the hint when Pope B16 said after his last book came out, about the life and times of Jesus that it would be his LAST book.
