Thousands turn out for Pope Benedict blessing

| No Comments

Pope Benedict addressed over 50,000 people on Sunday in St. Peter's Square in his first such appearance since announcing his resignation last week, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Benedict recited the Angulus prayer as well and thanking and blessing his supporters, news sources reported. He also asked for prayer for the future pope who will take his place.

BBC News said the Vatican is now considering holding the papal conclave earlier than originally planned in order to have a pontiff in place prior to Holy Week.
