The Next Conclave — The Camerlengo and The Major Penitentiary

The Next Conclave — The Camerlengo and The Major Penitentiary

The Camerlengo of the Holy Roman Church and the Major Penitentiary have very specific, non-transferable duties to perform during the sede vacante. However, it is not imperative that the Major Penitentiary participate in the conclave. The current Major Penitentiary is NOT a cardinal. So he can't participate anyway. On the other hand, there has to be a Camerlengo at the conclave. The Camerlengo always has to be a cardinal. This article looks at the implications of the 80 year rule as it applies to conclave participation when it comes to the The Camerlengo and The Major Penitentiary:
