Cardinal Sodano Invites Cardinals to Rome to Prepare for the Conclave

Following the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI yesterday February 28 2013, the dean of the College of Cardinals, Cardinal Angelo Sodano, today March 1 2013 wrote to all cardinals inviting them to the first General Congregation. This first general congregation will begin on Monday March 4 at the Synod of Bishops. 

This Congregation in line with the Apostolic Constitution Universi Dominici Gregis is to be held prior to the commencement of the conclave. The constitution states that “all cardinals who are not legitimately impeded must attend the General Congregations, once they have been informed of the vacancy of the Apostolic See.” Withing this General Congregation, the Sacred College of Cardinals will choose a date for entrance into  the conclave.
