THE PONTIFICAL ELECTION
THE CARDINAL CONCLAVE of JUDE II
The College of Jude II moments prior to the Conclave of 1820.
The revenant laymen masses scurried around the immaculate Basilica of the Ascent as if they embodied a flock of lamb faltering before their shepherd in plead of nourishment - they gathered outside the Holy Place in hopes of catching a glimpse of whatever apprises and updates in regard to the current progressional state of the college of Cardinals during their contemplation in whom they may choose to elect as the successor of late High Priest Jude II, at the same time - rallying about in preparation for the upcoming battle to be taken place against the Norland foe.
Within the whitewashed walls of the pristine Cathedral’s third floor stationed the six holy men of the college of Jude II, draped in ornate red clerical robe with merely sustain in their eyes - Cardinals determining the ensuing ambition of the Faith of Canon by so electing the future Pontiff. There sat, Robert Cardinal Rochefort, Adelric Cardinal Freising, Gawain Cardinal Provdenetia, Ailred Cardinal Reinmar, and Alfred Cardinal Jorenus - At the front centre seat sat the Vice-Chancellor Pelagius Cardinal Albarosa, preparing the long awaited rendition of the official Conclave Election of 1820 as the red Cardinals considered their final decisions.
THE CARDINAL’S SUITE
Although the day was merely of the Summer of the Sun’s Smile- the sky was dolefully overcast in a dull tint of gray, the rain still poured upon the entirety of the City of Providence as each drop frolicked upon the various erection parapets - a stark contrast to the days of when the Canonist flocks knew of a High Pontiff to submit under their Holy authority. Moreover, the tone of day was then comparable to the timorous energy lingering about amongst the esteemed college of Cardinals, their faces scoured in a manner of quiver, occasionally whispering to one another as they’d intrigue their silent pontifical desires. The clerical Chamber was tense, solemn, but atmost - Virtuous.
Thereafter, it was roughly two days since the Cardinals were summoned by the Vice-Chancellor in wake of his Holiness’s death, although - at this very moment it seemed the time was ripe, the Cardinals already procured their final decisions, and thus - the Pontifical election process finally began at that. The Vice-Chancellor, Cardinal Albarosa, rising from his flaxen seat- proceeded with a pre-written prayer as he cleared his throat;
“Heavenly Creator, walk with us as our mediator and judge to endow us with a sound mind and contrite heart in the election of the next Holy Pontiff. Grant, we pray, that by your infinite wisdom and omnipotence that whomever is chosen shall reflect your mercy, compassion, strength, and duty in the exercising of this great Holy Office. This we ask in prayer, in the name of all Aenguls, all saints, and of the universal church, Amen.”
Cardinal Albarosa then raised a single finger, signing the Lucien in benediction toward the six Cardinals, signalling in which it was then time to cast their votes - determining his late Holiness, Jude II’s successor.
ON BEHALF OF THE CHURCH OF CANON,
In Domini Nomen Oramus, Cardinal Albarosa
