Yes, this picture was taken in Rome today, within 24 hours of the Pope's resignation. When I did my (admittedly meager) best to verify it, Google showed it to be genuine and 5 hours old.
I anyone knows anything more, I'd be interested.
Does anyone think the next Pontiff will really take the name Peter? Or be Peter the Roman?
Is this resignation a move to insure that the Vatican vipers don't get control if Benedict XVI were to be incapacitated in some way, like John Paul II?
Pray for him and all of our Cardinals. I know you do...
