Pope's Last Farewell to Be Broadcast Live

On the last day of his pontificate, Benedict XVI will be filmed live by television cameras during his final hours in the Vatican, according to Monsignor Edoardo MarĂ­a ViganĂ³, director of the Vatican Television Center (VTC), who explained that the Pontiff's departure to Castel Gandolfo by helicopter "will be a historic moment."

Television cameras will be in the Apostolic Palace and will follow him until 5:00 pm when the Pontiff will board the helicopter that will take him to Castel Gandolfo. His resignation will come into force three hours later, initiating the period of the Vacant See.
