The First Minute of the Sede Vacante at St. Peter's

Students from the Rome program of the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota recite the rosary in Piazza San Pietro with their chaplain, in the final minutes of Pope Benedict XVI's pontificate.
The bells of St. Peter's toll 8 o'clock in the evening, the moment at which Pope Benedict XVI's reign officially ended.
