At 8 p.m. Thursday in Rome, Pope Benedict XVI will become the first pope in more than 600 years to retire. 

The cardinals of the Roman Catholic church are currently meeting in Rome this week to bid farewell to Pope Benedict as well as to decide when the conclave will begin to elect the next pope.

The church has said it plans to have a new pope in place before Easter on March 31.

Speculation has already started on who might be the next pope, including Cardinal Sean O'Malley of the Archdiocese of Boston.

I'd like to see a Pope that deals with the Catholic problem of countless pedophiles being protected from prosecution! It's long over due, it's been going on for decades. These perverts deserve the death penalty! I don't care who they think they are, they are not above the law! Parents that know this is going on, and look the other way, are just as bad!
