ALBANY, N.Y. -- Bishop Howard Hubbard of the Albany Roman Catholic Diocese talked about the process of selecting a new pope.
Hubbard says he's surprised how long the Cardinals are taking, but understands they want to be well-prepared before entering the conclave. Hubbard also addressed the possibility of a non-European Pope.
"A great deal of speculation that the new pope might come from Africa, Latin America, or Asian, and I think that would be good for the Catholic Church. But, it's always a matter of asking the Holy Spirit to guide us to make the right decision, and I'm confident the spirit will," he said.
The Cardinals will continue their meetings on Friday in Rome.
