Cardinal DiNardo blogs as conclave for new pope begins

Houston Chronicle

Cardinal Daniel DiNardo might be in Rome preparing to elect the new Pope, but he will be keeping in touch with local Catholics on the archdiocese’s website.

A new page,, launched this week with background information on the secret election process for a new pope, live updates from the Vatican’s news office and a new blog about DiNardo’s trip titled, “When in Rome.”

“That will be updated as frequently as we get a post from the cardinal, whenever he has time available,” said Jonah Dycus of the archdiocese’s communications office. “Obviously, when the conclave starts there will be no transmissions.”
