7 Quick Takes Friday (set #93)

7 Quick Takes Friday

This week: A video wrap-up of the conclave, starting with the very best overview video. Then, a more detailed one. When the doors to the Sistine Chapel were closed.

Some random thoughts or bits of information are worthy of sharing but don’t warrant their own full post. This idea was started by Jennifer Fulwiler at Conversion Diary to address this blogging need. So, some Fridays I too participate when I have accumulated 7 worthy items. Thank you Jen for hosting this project!
