The Pope's Resignation

Jump to last reply

By now, I'm sure most of you have heard of the Pope tendering his resignation, and his last day of official duty will be on the 28th. I happen to be in Rome during that period.

My question is: how big are the crowds in Rome whenever there is a massive event at the Vatican? News reports so far have not stated whether there will be a ceremony of sorts so I have really no idea what to expect.
