Cardinals to begin searching for successor to Pope

VATICAN CITY -- The  Vatican City looked different in comparison to the way it looked Feb. 24.

Cardinals from all over the world will meet and officially start the process of finding a successor to Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.

Cardinals could even set a date for the conclave, which is the ancient and secret election ritual inside the Sistine Chapel.

For now, a series of meetings about the state of the church are being held. These meetings are for the cardinals to have formal discussions.

Any discussion of potential candidates is forbidden.
