Refrigerator magnets of Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI are sold in Rome.
The Pontiff will hold his last weekly public audience on Feb. 27, 2013, before he retires the following day. Pope Benedict XVI has been the leader of the Catholic Church for eight years and is the first Pope to retire since 1415. He cites ailing health as his reason for retirement and will spend the rest of his life in solitude away from public engagements.
