    They both took 2 days if that's what you mean. Many conclaves took only a couple of days:
    In 1903, Pope Pius X was chosen on the 7th ballot, on the 5th day. (The current system of scheduling 4 votes each day had not yet been adopted.)

    In 1913, Pope Benedict XV was chosen on the 10th ballot, on the 4th day.

    In 1922, Pope Pius XI was chosen on the 14th ballot, on the 5th day.

    In 1939, Pope Pius XII was chosen on the 3 ballot, on the 2nd day. (Actually Pope Pius XII received two-thirds of the votes on the second ballot, but he requested a third vote to confirm the result. Pope Pius XII-- widely perceived as the leading candidate entering the election-- was elected in history's shortest conclave, which lasted less than 26 hours.) <----Shortest

    In 1958, Pope John XXIII was chosen on the 11th ballot, on the 3rd day.

    In 1963, Pope Paul VI was chosen on the 6th ballot, on the 3rd day.

    In 1978 Pope John Paul I was chosen on the 4th ballot, on the 2nd day.

    Also in 1978, Pope John Paul II was chosen on the 8th ballot, on the 3rd day.
    This conclave took 5 voting rounds spread over two days.

I understand that he also has come out previously saying that something more needed to be done about the Priest sexual abuse cases in the US so maybe we'll see a shake up in that area soon.

    As for his being a member of the Hitlerj├╝gend don't believe everything you hear. Yes he served in the German military twice in WWII. Once as a youth and then again as an adult. He was drafted. It's called mandatory service. He got out of the first by going into the seminary (something he was already preparing for) and the second by defecting before the war was over. He actually refers to his experiences under Hitler as the reason for his faith. His statements on both Hitlers regime and the USSR are not very complementry.
    Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to insult him beacuse he was part of that organisation. Almost every young boy in that time was, it was just a little tidbit.

    Ahhh... then it was the shortest. The selection for Benedict XVI took 25 hours and 18 minutes (from 3.38pm BST monday to 4.56pm Tuesday). It looks like your list is incomplete.

    The site and the radio news said differently...
    Less than 26 can also be less than 25 hours and 18 minutes.
    Let me check somewhere else....

    This discussion
    Says less than 24 hours...

    The shortest conclave was the one that elected Pius XII in 1939 in less than 24 hours, although Julius II's conclave in 1503 must be a close contender. He bought the papacy with massive bribes, and banned simony -- the word for buying or selling ecclesiastical positions -- two years later.
    and this page says this:
    The shortest 20th-century conclave lasted one day (1939); it elected Pius XII.
    .
    .
    .
    Why am I going on about this?
    Ugh, whatever. It's what the internet and the news correspondent told me.

    I'll buy that. So I guess you're right. lol

    I guess that makes it the third shortest. Still a record in and of itself. I guess it doesn't actually matter unless you're like me and love the trivial details that make up history. lol

    Yeah, I can get carried away on those too, especially when I don't really have the time to do so.

    I'll shut up now.
