DENISON, TX -- Local Catholics are keeping a watchful eye as a conclave is held to select a new pope. Cardinals began meeting in Rome, but at the end of the day, only black smoke was showing from the Sistine Chapel.

The smoke signal means they have not yet selected a new pope. There are several candidates being considered, and a few Americans are even among those mentioned.

"I'm glad to be able to watch this and be alive for this," says Bobbie Harris. "I've seen several, but this one is special too."

Cardinals are set to resume voting on Wednesday, twice in the morning and twice in the afternoon. Pope Benedict XVI was elected after 2 days and 4 ballots. The next pope needs to get two-thirds majority, or 77 votes.
