Crowd gathering ahead of conclave
In St. Peter's Square, the crowd's anticipation seems to be growing, as cardinals prepare to huddle in secret to choose the next pope.
Thousands of pilgrims have already converged on the square, gazing up at the chimney on the roof of the Sistine Chapel, where the world will get the first indication a new pontiff has been chosen.
A Mexican tourist says it's "a great opportunity" to be "living something historic." She plans to be in the square every day "to see what color smoke comes out."
A young priest says the cardinals "must feel fear and anxiety."
