Wisdom of the Holy Spirit
The Conclave continues, as no single Cardinal has received enough votes to be elected Pope. Rodrigo visits della Porta, hoping to gain his votes, and outlines the consequences of what will happen depending on who is elected Pope -- war with Naples or Milan, Rome slaughtered. Rodrigo emphasizes his neutrality on these issues, making him best suited to be elected. But Porta won’t support Rodrigo. He has no desire to be pope, but will if the Holy Spirit deems it so.
