Photo of the Day

Associated Press
FILE - This April 19, 2005 file photo shows Pope Benedict XVI greeting the crowd from the central balcony of St. Peter's Basilica moments after being elected, at the Vatican. "Naturally the pope couldn't change completely at that moment, so he went out with those black sleeves _ we could see his sweater!" Vatican's master of liturgical celebrations Piero Marini recalled. "But even that was a human gesture of how he was dressed as a cardinal." Next month's conclave to elect the 266th leader of the world's 1.2 billion Catholics will have all the trappings of papal elections past, with the added twist that the this time around the current pope is still very much alive.
