VATICAN CITY - The cardinals who'll decide on a successor to Pope Benedict have wrapped up their pre-conclave discussions.
Vatican Officials say they voted to end their deliberations even though some still wanted to speak. Spokesman The Reverend Thomas Rosica says most felt they had "enough information."
The cardinal electors begin their conclave tomorrow -- proceeding into the Sistine Chapel, whose doors will be shut before balloting begins.
Since last Monday, cardinals have been airing their thoughts on what kind of man to choose -- a strong manager to overhaul a scandal-plagued Vatican bureaucracy, or a charismatic priest who can inspire the faithful.
In this morning's session, the cadinals got a rundown on efforts to clean up after one of those scandals: allegations of money laundering at the Vatican bank.
