The chimney on the Sistine Chapel gives off black smoke as cardinals voted at St. Peter’s Square

When black smoke billows from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel, it means Roman Catholic cardinals have not elected a pope, and as the smoke still billows, the cardinals apparently are yet to elect a new pope in their second or third rounds of balloting.

After a first vote on Tuesday in a conclave to elect a new pope, cardinals voted twice on Wednesday in Michelangelo’s famed frescoed chapel, but the world will have to wait.

Cardinals including John Onaiyekan who was appointed by Benedict XVI, who stunned the Catholic world last month by becoming the first pope in 600 years to resign, are gathered at the Vatican to elect a new pope, as the world continue watching the billowing from the chimney of the Sistine chapel, and wait to see if the cardinals will be able to elect a pope who can clean up a corrupt Vatican bureaucracy as well as an Evangelist who can revive Catholicism in a time of growing secularism.

The conclave where Tuesday’s election was held was named after Pope Benedict XVI who threw the church into turmoil following his resignation.
