Cardinal Francis George, Archbishop of Chicago, discussed the papal conclave, the qualities that the cardinals are looking for in a new pope, and the potential for reforms within the Catholic Church, in an interview that was broadcast live today, Feb. 28, 2013 on CBS THIS MORNING on the CBS Television Network (7:00 AM-9:00 AM). George told co-hosts Charlie Rose and Norah O'Donnell, "reform of the sex abuse scandal has to continue," and that he believes "we have the structures ready to move forward." Watch the appearance below!

Excerpts of the interview are below.

CHARLIE ROSE: Cardinal Francis George of the Archdiocese of Chicago will help pick a new pope and he just left a lunch with his fellow cardinals. Good morning, thank you for joining us. What was the lunch like? Tell us the sense of – what are the cardinals saying to each other?

CARDINAL FRANCIS GEORGE: The moment of saying goodbye to the pope was of course an emotional moment, but one of deep, deep respect and gratitude. Not only for what he has done throughout eight years, but also for the moment. And he, as was said, appeared joyful and relaxed. The cardinals among themselves are speaking about a lot of things from the weather to who should be the next pope. And those conversations will continue now in earnest until we go into conclave.

ROSE: What are you looking for?

GEORGE: We're looking for someone who can be the Bishop of Rome, that is, respond to the needs of this local church, but also, because he's universal pastor, respond to the needs of the whole world. When Paul VI went to speak to the United Nations, he said he was an expert in humanity. Because for 2,000 years, the papal chair has accompanied the experiences of the human race. So somebody therefore who has a universal vision and a heart for the poor, who are first in the kingdom of Heaven. Then someone who has the necessary languages – a requisite for communication in our day. And of course someone who can govern, who has the habit of making decisions necessary to keep the church faithful to her lord. And a pleasing personality, we all hope of course.
