Finally, the third scrutineer reads the name aloud and again records it. As each ballot is read, the third scrutineer pierces it with a needle through the word eligo , and all of the ballots are strung on a string; after the reading of the last ballot, the ends are tied, and the ballots are placed in a receptacle or on one side of the table.

All of the electors can record the names as they are read. After the last vote is counted, the scrutineers tally the number of votes for each name.

Thereupon, if a new Pope has not been elected after seven more ballots, there is another pause for prayer, discussion, and spiritual exhortation.

This process may be repeated two more times. If a Pope still has not been elected, the Cardinal electors may decide either to accept an absolute majority decision for the next ballot, or select the two names who received the most votes in the preceding ballot and accept the one who then receives an absolute majority RDG , God, who imposes the burden, will sustain him with his hand so that he will be able to bear it. Peter, possesses full and supreme power over the universal Church RDG , However, if the new Pope is not already a Bishop, he will immediately be ordained one by the Dean of the College of Cardinals.

This provision keeps open the possibility that the Cardinals could nominate and elect someone beyond the College of Cardinals and someone who is not a Bishop RDG , Technically, the conclave ends when the new Pope assents to his election. When these formalities are completed, the Cardinal electors approach the new Pope and make an act of homage and obedience. An act of thanksgiving is then made.

The new Pope is vested in the garments pertaining to his office e. Just as an aside, three sets of cassocks— small, medium, and large— are ready to clothe the new Pope for his first public appearance, until his own personal garments are made.

I further order the Cardinal electors, graviter onerata ipsorum conscientia, to maintain secrecy concerning these matters also after the election of the new Pope has taken place, and I remind them that it is not licit to break the secret in any way unless a special and explicit permission has been granted by the Pope himself.

Marisa- I was wondering about that because I thought that was the case. How and why has this been revealed, unless maybe the Pope did grant permission? I hope so, as otherwise it would be yet another example of dishonesty and lack of integrity. I'm going to believe he did unless I hear otherwise.
