Cardinals gathering St. Peter's Square

A cardinal walks near St. Peter's Square ahead of Pope Benedict XVI's last public audience on February 25, 2013 in Vatican City, Vatican. Benedict has been the leader of the Catholic Church for eight years and is the first Pope to retire since 1415. He cites ailing health as his reason for retirement and will spend the rest of his life in solitude away from public engagements.
