Vatican Pope
Clouds loom over St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican, Tuesday, Feb.12, 2013. With a few words in Latin, Pope Benedict XVI did what no pope has done in more than half a millennium, stunning the world by announcing his resignation Monday, Feb. 11, 2013, and leaving the already troubled Catholic Church to replace the leader of its 1 billion followers by Easter.
