    It something new to me to witness the way the announcement was made that a new pope had been elected came from the traditional white smoke billowing out of a chimney.

            Agree with cup. Dan brown's book does give a good description on how the conclave is actually held and done. Ange, have you read the Angels and Demons book? I heard from a few friends that it would be good that you read the Angels and Demons one first and you would understand the Da Vinci Code book better as it has a slight continuation?

            Just finished Angels and Demons , yet to get the Da Vinci book!

            Anyway , I hope this new pope would be as good or even better than Pope John Paul II. I thought the latter was an amazing man and it really touched my heart when I saw his biography on TV.

              LOL after reading both Dan Brown's books my only thought was that this guy sleeps with both the beautiful sexy women huh?

              Anyway both books are very interesting though in their own right.

              But yes it was really interesting to see a new pope elected. I know some of my catholic friends were pretty touched.

                jean you are right! Not to mention that in the A&D book , the guy was shot in the leg by the Hassassin and he still could survive! Wonder whether the bullet went to the femur artery.

                Yep, guess it was the first time for the Catholic Church to ever be sorta chased after by the media in terms of election and stuff. Very awe.

                        cc_lia, this new pope is from Germany.
                        watched the live telecast too! its pretty heart warming to see people regardless of nationalities waving their flags and celebrating together...

                              ha, I have just finished reading Dan's Angels and then the election took place, the conclave exactly took place as described minus the dramatical ending, of course!
