Thanks be to God in His loving providence I am able to watch CTV and see the crowds in St Peter's Square rejoicing that the white smoke is billowing out of the Sistine Chapel chimney. In Rome, people run to St Peter's Square or drive and then park their cars anywhere to be there. The Square is already full so I expect the Via della Conciliazione will itself get filled.
It will be a nail-biting time for the next 45 minutes or so, but there is a great joy that we do have a Pope, whoever he is. In the meantime, I'll get a couple more screen grabs from CTV.
The delight of a religious sister
Crowds pouring down the Via della Conciliazione towards a packed square
Hey! They got a band!
And they got another one
