Cardinals Summoned to Rome

From Europe:

"The world's cardinals, who will select John Paul II's successor, have been summoned to Rome, a sign that preparations are under way for a conclave, the secretive election procedure that must begin within three weeks of the pope's death.

Another sign of the gravity of the pope's condition was a decision by the Vatican to keep open its press office, which normally closes at 3 p.m. "

  1. Isn't it a bit earlier to summon all cardinals? With air travel there is no rush and can only be an embarassment if the end doesn't come soon.
