Pope Benedict XVI
Benedict XVI has become the first pope to resign in over 700 years. Cardinals are now begin preparing for a conclave in the Sistine Chapel to elect his successor.
‘Long live the pope!’ a crowd outside chanted as a clock chimed 8 p.m. – the hour that Benedict said he would step down in an announcement earlier this month that stunned the world.
“I will no longer be pope but a simple pilgrim,” the pope told supporters earlier after arriving at Castel Gandolfo from the Vatican in a helicopter that flew as the bells of St Peter’s rang out.
Benedict is only the second pope to resign in the Church’s 2,000-year history, and in his final hours as pontiff he took the unprecedented step of pledging allegiance to his successor.
