Change at the Vatican

University of Notre Dame faculty members continue to react to the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, who stepped down from the papal post, effective Feb. 28. Upon his official resignation at 8 p.m. Rome time (2 p.m. EST), the Catholic Church entered a period called “sede vacante” (empty seat) which will end with the election of a new pope by the Church’s cardinal electors in Conclave.

Members of the University of Notre Dame faculty discuss the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI and what's next for the Catholic Church.
