SEDE VACANTE: Benedict XVI closes his pontificate at Castel Gandolfo

2014-02-28

(-VIDEO ONLY-) One year ago, at 8PM, local time in Rome, the Swiss Guards closed the doors to the Apostolic Palace at Castel Ganfoldo. This simple act came to symbolize the end of Benedict  XVI's pontificate, and the start of the Sede Vacante.

Minutes earlier, the Pope emeritus had addressed a crowd outside the Palace, telling them he was "simply a pilgrim the last leg of his pilgrimage on Earth.”

As the Catholic Church closed a chapter in its history, a new one would begin shortly.
