Papal Electors and the “Old” Mass -- an Initial Preview on the Conclave

(Rome) During the last days of the Pontificate of Pope Benedict XVI. a glance has already been made at the possible successors of Christ’s representative on Earth, successor of the successor of the Prince of the Apostles, Peter and Bishop of Rome.  According to Church law any baptized Catholic man can be elected.  It follows from ecclesiastical praxis that the future Pope in any case is selected from the circle of the Conclave participants.  At this point a glance should be cast on each of the Cardinals, who belong to the Conclave and have already celebrated the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite or have taken part in such a celebration.  Of 117 Cardinals, who will be closed in the Sixtine Chapel, this applies to 22 Cardinals.  Almost every fifth member of the papal voters have had direct contact with the traditional form of the Roman Rite through the Motu proprio Summorum Pontificum.  The longest serving Cardinals among them is the Mexican, Juan Cardinal Sandoval Iniguez, emeritus Archbishop of Guadelajara.  He was already in 1994, accepted in the College of Cardinals. Among the the Cardinals declared in last two extraordinary Consistoriums of the past year there are none, who celebrate the “Old Mass” or have assisted at one.

Further Cardinals, among howm two, are considered “papabili”, Marc Cardinal Ouellet, the emeritus Archbishop of Quebec, the Primate of Canada, and since 2010 Prefect of the Bishops’ Congregation to the Roman Curia (Cardinal since 2003), and Timothy Cardinal Dolan, since 2009 Archbishop of New York and since 2010, the President of the American Bishops’ Conference (Cardinal since 2012), have enacted the Motu proprio Summorum Pontificum in their own areas of jurisdiction.
