Welcome back to on the -- foxnews.com live I'm Jonathan -- the pope's resignation Pope Benedict resignation.
Became official at 8 PM me in Rome.
Yes today and now we await to see who will be the next -- the conclave of cardinals.
We expect to happen some more -- to stop between somewhere between -- March -- -- 1212.
We're not sure exactly yet we we are told that the college of cardinals will tell us on Monday.
-- -- let's get to actually remain a row now who is -- joining us from our room.
Bureau and now she's -- correspondent for the relevant radio network actually I just wanna -- -- -- -- have a slight delay on the satellite so they -- -- with us.
Did tell me first of all when you think the conclave will happen.
And to whom you believe all the front runners to be the next Pope.
Well Jonathan we're all waiting with bated breath here to find out exactly when the conclave will happen and although the congregations are going to start meeting on Monday to start discussing that very question.
It's still doesn't mean we will know the answer on Monday so we expect that it will be at the early part of next week so we continue.
Do weights and wives and as far as the front runners.
It's an incredible.
Group it's really amazing group of men as you study their CD's.
And I'm telling you any of those who walk in there cardinal couldn't walk out of hope it's just amazing.
And dressing are those that stand by for a second actually our -- Amy Kellogg spoke to -- Dublin from my New York here obviously I did earlier today.
Told to him back -- how the Kabul's old begin to told to each other back to whom they might choose his cobbled illuminate me.
I will say to some of the cardinals who might feel very comfortable with -- What's your read on him or have you forgotten know him or.
With what you're.
What what what your gut tell you about such and such a man.
And we don't need to apologize for that I I think counts people who want us to do that I think only spirit wants us to do that I think the protocol of the church wants to do that.
Yeah does go on again not.
No campaigning no posturing but kind of -- very realistic way to try to get to know one another better.
Actually I guess whomever becomes -- the next Pope.
It's gonna face some pretty big issues we.
There's obviously be that that the work that tell Pope Benedict started on dealing with the child sex abuse scandal -- declining enrollment.
There's a shortage of priests and of course there's always.
The internal politics all of the Vatican all and so whoever takes is on -- a pretty big job.
It is a pretty big job and in fact but the sex abuse scandals.
Course Pope Benedict out walks into a very difficult time in the church.
And -- It his reaction was one to -- in talking to people at the congregation for the doctrine of faith who worked closely with -- course.
He was there for 25 years before he was elected -- It's say he did as much as he could as much -- it was in his power.
But now the new -- we'll have to pick up where he left off -- all of the inroads that he made.
Along with all of the other things that you mention and in fact it's interesting because this year is what's called the year -- face.
And it's a year that's -- specially dedicated.
Two people renewing their faith Catholics are asked.
To remember what it means to be Catholic and I think another challenge will be to -- trying to wreak -- highs.
The the Catholic world.
There seems to be a thirst among Catholics were really good solid strong -- he says.
And there was a drop off of that in the late sixties.
And so now we how many Catholics who are wondering what does it mean to be Catholic.
And so one of the great challenges of the new poll will be to take the work that Pope Benedict the sixteenth has done with the new event utilization and periodontal.
And -- what -- -- they're reforming the internal.
Workings of the Vatican we -- bit.
The stories that it is today a place -- as bad as I guess Eddie -- organization might be.
A place -- -- its own Amanda backstabbing and political.
They're all those who said Pope Benedict was.
Not a great administrator he was at -- fabulous theologian but not the greatest administrative do you think the church needs somebody who connect.
Be a better administrator.
I think being a strong administrator is a really really great and important quality.
And it -- -- in the new poll.
And the thing is is that.
One thing I understand there will always be differences of opinion that's gonna always be there there will always be some sort of dissension.
Then again that's also part of what makes and organization grow fact Pope Benedict yesterday in his remarks that that the church of the living.
Growing organism and so I think we can expect that that will always be there but we -- right it would be.
Really good to have a strong administrator to help start cleaning up.
Any weak areas there.
I just briefly actually one of our viewers writing in here are asking how important it in particular -- guessing what you -- -- that the outreach within the Catholic will.
How important is it that a that a Pope.
Speak many many languages.
Well -- it's always a bonus the more languages that a Pope speaks the better.
Because of course we all love the opportunity to be addressed in our own mother tongue no matter where we are.
And that we sign example of this Pope at his last public audience.
-- his messages were given in six languages but then he also addressed the group in Romanian in check.
In Slovakia and so it was it is very special to be able to reach out directly communicate with people in their own language.
All right -- They -- Dana -- Rome correspondent with the relevant radio network have a fabulous.
Evening Friday evening and -- as we -- -- from those helicopter shots yesterday really is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
Thanks very much for being with us actually great -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
