Plenary Gathering of the Central Advisory
After the Mass, each member of the Advisory—38 people from twenty countries, including the delegates for the various regional circumscriptions—prepared a proposal with the name or names of the one or more priests in the Congress whom they considered best suited for the position of Prelate.
Each member of the Advisory deposited her proposal in an urn which was then brought to the site where the General Elective Congress was to take place.
