Pope John Paul I smiles and waves with both hands to the crowd filling St. Peter’s Square, August 26, 1978. The former Patriarch of Venice appeared on the balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica a short time after white smoke emerged from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel, indicating that the Cardinals had elected a successor for Pope Paul VI. The new pope is flanked by Monsignor Virgilio Noe, master of the pontifical office, right, and Monsignor Orazio Cocchetti, left, also of the pontifical ceremonies office.
