Pope Benedict XVI waves at the end of a vespers, or evening prayers, mass at the Basilica of Saint Paul in Rome on Jan. 25, 2013. Archbishop of Washington Donald Wuerl said at a press conference that the pope himself "said by the very nature of his age, this was not going to be a long pontificate."
