The College exists to advise the Pope in the governance of the Catholic Church and to elect his successor should he die or resign. Its members consist of officials of the Roman Curia, archbishops of major sees from around the world, and others chosen at the pleasure of the Pope.

Do you or anyone know the color of smoke when they pick a new Pope? I thought it was white?

And you would be right! Burning ballots results in black smoke. In order to turn it white, the cardinals are given a packet to be tossed in with the final ballots that is supposed to generate white smoke. It didn't work quite as planned when Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger was elected.

The smoke looked more grey than white. The tip off, however, is the tolling of the bells on St. Peter's. Someone mentioned the other day that each bell has a name. The largest one is St. Andrew's bell, named for Peter's brother.

The largest of the bells - campanone has a diameter of 2.50 meter, a height of 2.60 meter, measuring 7.5 meters in circumference and weighing about 11 tons. It was cast in 1786 by Luigi Valadier and blessed by Pius VI in the same year. Since 1931, the bells are operated electrically, thus permitting even the largest bell to be tolled from a distance. It is rung at Christmas and Easter, on the Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul, and every time the Pope imparts the "Urbi et Orbi" blessing (to the city and to the world). It is also rung on the election of a new pontiff. The note of this bell is E3.

I encourage the faithful and people of good will to add Rome time to their smartphone world clock settings; and, whenever possible, to pray the Divine Office at the precise hours as the assembled Cardinals.

Here in EDT Vespers should pose little problem at 4:15 PM; Matins at 4:30 AM will be much more difficult. But Lent was never meant to be easy.

On Fox they played a clip from someone else’s show (I think it was Jimmy Kimmel’s) of someone asking questions of passers-by about the “new pope” (as if one had already been elected). Several people pretended to have heard the news that the new pope had been elected. One was asked if he had heard the interview with “the new pope’s ex-wife” and said he had, and that she was hilarious.
