Virtual Conclave

Virtual Conclave

Beliefnet has set up a “Virtual Conclave”, gathering a number of pundits, including yours truly, to talk about the conclave and offer our views and analysis.

It’s an eclectic group of Catholics and non-Catholics (and non-Christians), as well as orthodox and unorthodox Catholics. Should be interesting.

  • Dom, on an extremely minor note, the list of 14 potential papabili names them with the word “Cardinal” first.

    Of course the proper way is, say, “Francis Cardinale Arinze”. 

  • I don’t have any control over what other people write there.

    However, while the formal way to write it is to put “Cardinal” before the last name, it is acceptable journalistic style to put the title before the whole name. This is the way we do it at Catholic World Report and Catholic World News.
