MIAMI (CBS4) – As the world watches, Vatican City holds its breath. For a second Sunday the holiest seat in the Roman Catholic Church is vacant.

“It is a very strange, especially in Rome,” Father Robert Dodaro told CBS4’s Michele Gillen who is in Rome for the conclave. “The windows in the papal apartments are closed constantly. Yes there is anxiety in the city.”

Father Dodaro, theology professor based in Rome, believes there is momentum among the cardinals to choose a pope who is committed to change.

“I don’t mean culture of abuse and financial scandal, everyone wants that culture to change. It must. The question is will the cardinals pick a pope who will be able to lead that change,” said Father Dodaro

The conclave and voting begins Tuesday when the 115 cardinals will enter the Sistine chapel and ultimately emerge with a new leader.
