Home Busted Halo Videos The Conclave: Why Rome? Fr. Dave's Video Report from Rome By The Editors March 11, 2013 Why does the papal conclave happen in Rome? Why does one person head the Catholic Church? And, what is the role of prayer in all of this? Busted Halo® had some fun last week with Papal Madness, but now it’s time to get down to business and choose the actual pope. Fr. Dave Dwyer, CSP, answers these questions and more as he takes us on a pre-conclave video tour of Vatican City. Tune in to The Catholic Channel (Ch. 129) on Sirius XM throughout the week for coverage of the conclave from Rome.
