Overview

The Archbishop of New York offers his insight on his time in Rome, the Conclave and the election of a new Holy Father, Pope Francis.

Since February 2013, many have asked Cardinal Timothy Dolan to comment about Pope Benedict XVI's resignation, his final days in the Vatican, the Conclave, and the excitement and joy of the election of Pope Francis. Those two months--between the time Pope Benedict announced his retirement up until the election of Pope Francis--were a deeply spiritual and important period for the Cardinal. In this eBook original, he reflects on that most exciting of times. By turns, witty, provocative, and inspiring Cardinal Dolan gives a first hand account of what happened during those days and what it means for the future of the Church.

this is a very good book written in relaxed and casual style about what goes on in the mind of electors of the new pope. without "secrets" being revealed, a good insight is shown into the process.

Cardinal Dolan provides a great insight to his experience leading up to the Conclave and memorable moments immediately following the election of Pope Francis.  This was a great book to read and I finished it in a couple hours. I am thankful to Cardinal Dolan for sharing his stories with those of us who couldn't be there.
