Cardinal feels faint just before the beginning of the Conclave.

A few hours before the start of the conclave on Tuesday suffered a cardinal eligible to vote a slight weakness. As observers reported, the Italian Cardinal Antonio Maria Veglio had helpers to support him at the morning Mass "Pro eligendo Papa" due to circulation problems . The 75-year-old President of the Pontifical Council for Migrants however appeared to recover quickly again.

Veglio in the afternoon went with the other 114 cardinals into the Conclave, and made his oath in the Sistine Chapel standing. All cardinals enjoyed "excellent health", said Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi.

Images can also be found of the beginning of the Conclave on Cardinal Schönborn's Facebook page. The Archbishop of Vienna showed on his site at the beginning of the election, via his colleagues, the oath and photos of him taking it.
