    Can you ask Cardinal Tagle how many votes he got, if any?

    • Mario_Garcia

      There is the solemn vow of secrecy to be followed. Any Cardinal who divulges it will be excommunicated.

      • novaliches

        How come, some people knew that the current pope was ranked 2nd during the pope benedict election. also, people knew that it was cardinal scola and 2 argentinian were being considered with Pope Francis got almost 100% of the vote on last counting. I guess there is not secret in this world, eh.

        it’s purely speculation and nothing else…parang d ka na nasayan sa media…

        alam nmn ng lahat na napakahirap makakuha ng blita sa Vatican..Ask Jessica Soho at Cheche Cruz Valdez alam nila yan..

        Speculations from media and Vatican observers parekoy. Yung mga papabile hindi naman Vatican ang may gawa niyan kundi ang media. During the 2005 Papal Conclave, may isang diary ng cardinal na na-leak sa Italian media thus confirming that Pope Francis – then Cardinal Bergoglio – ranked 2nd. Of course no response ang Vatican dito.

        Merely speculations from the outside.

  • rock_steady

    at 55, he might be papabile for 1 or 2, or even 3 conclaves. Pope Francis is an older pope so his reign is not expected to last longer than Pope John Paul 2. Now that the conclave has show openness to a non-european pope, Cardinal Tagle’s chances only gets better the next time around, if he is in good health God-willing. He was only made Cardinal a couple years back so he is really a green horn. Although with him being considered papabile is already a big honor. his book is also sold out for a time at Amazon, so hopefully he will be rewarded with a handsome material wealth from this, which would help sustain him and his advocacy.
