Round three: conclave of the People of God

 |  NCR Today

We started with 117 eligible cardinals in the College of Cardinals. Now with two rounds of voting under our belts, we have our top 10 of the cardinals that you, the readers, think will become the next pope.

Below are the 10 cardinals who received the most votes in round two. Of those 10, choose the man you think will be voted to become the next pope (not the person you would like to see become the next pope). Check back next Monday to see if your pick makes the top five!

We recognize that technically, any unmarried baptized Catholic man is eligible to become pope, but since that is unlikely, we only offered cardinals under the age of 80 (those who will be voting in the conclave) as the candidates.
