Brazilian cardinal and Sao Paulo archbishop Odilo Pedro Scherer arrives at St. Andrea al Quirinale Church to lead a Sunday service mass on March 10, 2013 in Rome, Italy. Cardinals are set to enter the conclave to elect a successor to Pope Benedict XVI after he became the first pope in 600 years to resign from the role. The conclave is scheduled to start on March 12 inside the Sistine Chapel and will be attended by 115 cardinals as they vote to select the 266th Pope of the Catholic Church.
