Christendom College President Dr. Timothy O'Donnell and alumnus Chris Wells (’97) are providing the English voiceover for Vatican TV and Radio’s coverage of the opening of the Papal conclave. President O'Donnell has also made appearances on EWTN. Vatican TV and Radio is the official feed for all media covering the conclave and O’Donnell and Wells' commentary will be used for all the English speaking countries around the world.
The conclave began with the Cardinals being assembled in the Pauline Chapel for prayer, after which, they processed from the Pauline to the Sistine Chapel. Entering the Chapel, the Cardinals approach a podium, where each one repeats the oath to observe the procedures set down by the apostolic constitutions. After all the Cardinals have taken the oath, the command "Exeunt omnes!" is proclaimed, and the Chapel doors are locked, bringing the broadcast to a close.
