WHAT COMES NEXT

The conclave to choose the next pope is expected to convene in mid-March.

A new pope should be in place in time to preside over Easter Mass at St. Peter's.

All cardinals under 80 are allowed to vote in the secret meeting held in the Sistine Chapel.

Ballots are burned after each round; black smoke means no pope; white smoke means a pope has been elected.
