How do they choose the Pope?
Once the current pope has died or resigned, the college of cardinals (approx. 120) all meet, must be under 80 to vote. They lock themselves in the Papal Conclave. A 2/3 majority is required for the election of the pope. If there is no consensus the first or second time, the votes are burned and black smoke is released. In that case, the two cardinals with the most votes are the only ones on the ballot. When 2/3 majority is reached, white smoke is emitted and he will be sworn in later as the pope.
Why must all Catholics be a part of a church?
1. We need to hear the Word of God from someone else because if we just preach it to ourselves we might be selective of what teachings we choose to believe. We need guidance. 2. We also need to because since we are made in the image of God, who is a Trinity, we are social creatures, so being surrounded by a community will benefit us with guidance and support. 3. The church also provides access to the sacraments, which in return give us graces and communion with Christ.
