In this October 2012 file photo, Pope Benedict XVI is seen behind a window of his pope-mobile as he delivers his blessing to faithful gathered in St. Peter's Square for his general audience at the Vatican. Benedict always cast himself as the reluctant pope, a shy bookworm who preferred solitary walks in the Alps to the public glare and the majesty of Vatican pageantry. But once in office, he never shied from charting the Catholic Church on the course he thought it needed--a determination reflected in his stunning announcement Monday that he would be the first pope to resign since 1415.
