White smoke rose from the Vatican's Sistine Chapel on Thursday 2:04 a.m. PHL time, indicating that Roman Catholic cardinals voting in a secret conclave had elected the successor of Pope Benedict XVI. The identity of the new pope will be known shortly.

Once a new pope has been elected, he is asked if he accepts and by which name he wishes to be known. The ballots are burned with an additive to produce white smoke.

In 2005, the Vatican decided to ring the great bell of St Peter's Basilica as an additional sign that the pope had been chosen. But confusion among the people who were supposed to ring it meant the bell lagged the smoke by about 15 munutes.

Inside, the pope dons his new papal vestments - tailors keep large, medium and small sizes ready - and sits on a throne in the Sistine Chapel to receive the other cardinals who file up to pay homage and swear obedience to the Church's new leader.

The senior cardinal deacon then steps out onto the central balcony of St Peter's Basilica overlooking the square and announces in Latin: "Annuntio vobis gaudium magnum. Habemus Papam" (I announce to you a great joy. We have a pope) and reveals the cardinal's name and the name he has chosen as pope.

“Meanwhile, the Pope goes to the Pauline Chapel for a short prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. The Pope then goes to the Loggia for the first "Urbi et Orbi" blessing,” according to the Vatican.

The new pope then appears on the balcony to deliver his first public pontifical greeting and bless the crowds in St Peter's Square.

A few days later, the new pope celebrates a Mass that marks the beginning of his ministry.

In 2005, from the fumata and the ringing of the bells to the Proto-deacon’s announcement about 45 minutes passed and less than 10 minutes later the new Pope appeared and gave his blessing. — with Reuters/ELR, GMA News
