Vatican Morning MassVATICAN CITY-

All eyes will remain peeled on the chimney of the Sistine Chapel Wednesday morning, as the Roman Catholic cardinals tasked with electing the next pope convene for a second day of the papal conclave.

The 115 voting eligible church leaders file into the chapel chamber, renowned for its ceiling fresco painted by Renaissance master Michelangelo, at 10:30 a.m. local time (4:30 a.m. ET).

They will have four opportunities to vote, twice early in the day and twice later.

Smoke could rise about one hour after the first vote.

If it is white, it means the Church has a new pope. If not, voting continues yet another day.
