BOSTON (CBS) – Former Boston Cardinal Bernard Law is also in Rome ahead of the Papal Conclave.
Law will not vote because he is 81 years old and not eligible to take part in the Conclave to elect a new pope. The cut off for voting is age 80.
Law celebrated Mass at The Church of Santa Susanna in Rome Sunday morning.
Amid a throng of reporters, Law stopped for just a moment when asked what he wants from a new pope.
“Whoever the Holy Spirit chooses will lead us in this year of faith,” Law said.
Law resigned as Boston’s Cardinal in 2002 over the clergy sex abuse scandal.
