Pope Benedict XVI delivers his blessing Sunday during his last Angelus noon prayer, from the window of his studio overlooking St. Peter's Square at the Vatican.
February 24, 2013 Some 100,000 people packed St. Peter's Square to hear the pope's last blessing. They interrupted him several times with applause and cheers. Benedict has one more scheduled public event: a general audience in St. Peter's Square on Wednesday.
Rev. Frederico Lombardi shows copies of 'Light of the World: The Pope, the Church and the Signs of the Times' by German journalist Peter Seewald, based on 20 hours of interviews with Pope Benedict XVI.
