Early Smoke: Surprise and Confusion on St. Peter’s Square

This awesome video from Fr. Roderick describes the emotions felt in St. Peter’s Square this morning when we had a “smoke sighting” early in the day:

In the video, we hear Father speculate that the delay in seeing “white smoke” — an indication of a newly elected Pope — means perhaps the perceived “majority” for Cardinal Scola may not in fact be holding up. I have no comment on that, but I do have to say I love Father’s enthusiasm and a firsthand look at the Square.
