VATICAN CITY (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The College of Cardinals is holding its final meetings before the process to begin the vote for the new pope officially starts.
Monday's meetings are designed to allow the cardinals to get to know each other and talk through the problems facing the catholic church.
The voting process known as conclave begins Tuesday and there's a sense that some names are starting to emerge.
"A week ago we would have said, 'Wow we've got a lot of work to do.' But now you see a sense of reservation and trust and faith," said Caridnal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York.
The first vote will be held Tuesday afternoon in the Sistine Chapel.
