ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Father Finbarr Stanton of St. Teresa's Catholic Church in Albany says the round the clock coverage of the conclave has drawn global attention from both Catholics and non-Catholics.

"It's just they don't want other influences to enter in. That's why they won't to keep out other people from suggesting or putting pressure on them," Father Stanton said.

"They want someone with integrity who will stand before them on issues that are really affecting the human family like war and peace, and justice or the distribution of wealth. And speak about development of human kind. There's desperation in some parts of the world and they need a voice to somehow talk to them."

Father Stanton says once that St. Teresa's will ring the bells signifying the election of the church's leader.
