The conclave includes 115 clergy under age 80 who will vote in secrecy. The process could take several days with no clear front runner evident, according to a Huffington Post-Reuters report. Seventy-seven votes are needed for victory.
The cardinals—known as "Princes of the Church"—won't emerge from their seclusion until they have chosen the 266th pontiff in the 2,000-year history of the Church.
