Cardinal-electors assigned to rooms in residence for conclave

Catholic World News - March 11, 2013

The 115 cardinal-electors who will participate in the conclave beginning March 12 have been assigned their rooms in the Domus Sanctae Marthae, the Vatican residence where they will stay during the conclave.

By lottery, most of the cardinals were assigned to the modest "suites" in the residence, while a few were given single cells. All of the rooms are simple dormitory-style rooms, with a simple bed, desk, and chair.

The cardinal-electors will move into their rooms on Thursday morning. The conclave begins Thursday afternoon.
