The (admirable) Magazine of the 'Brompton' Oratory has an obituary of the Reverend Sir Charles Dilke, Bart., sometime Provost, which includes an account of his reactions during one of the Papal Conclaves.
" ... a junior father was dispatched to [Dilke's] room to inform him that the white smoke had just appeared from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel and the bells of St Peter's had begun to ring. Would he like to come downstairs and join the other fathers in front of the television to see who the new pontiff was? He responded: 'Popes are elected, then they die, then they elect another one', and resumed playing Greensleeves on his recorder. The next morning as he was vesting for Mass, he had to ask the sacristan the name of the newly elected pope so that he could pray for him during the Canon" (as every priest does in his every Mass to reassert his very necessary and blessed communio with the Soliditas Sedis Petri).
I can think of few things more indicative of a most truly Catholic mens than this.
