How the Church elects a new pope

Cardinal Marc Ouellet SSP, 68
22 February 2013, 9:00

Has headed the Congregation for Bishops since June 2010. A French-Canadian, he joined the prestigious Sulpician teaching society shortly after priestly ordination and has spent most of his life as a seminary professor and rector. He worked in Colombia and Canada before going to Rome in 1997 to teach at the John Paul II Institute for Marriage and Family. He was named Archbishop of Quebec in 2002 and received his red hat three years later. Cardinal Ouellet often caused controversy by speaking out on moral issues.
