Brazilian Cardinal and Archbishop of Se Cathedral Odilo Pedro Scherer (2nd R), and Brazilian Cardinal Claudio Hummes (2nd L) --both considered in the running to be the future pope-- celebrate the Ash Wednesday mass at Se Cathedral in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on Februrary 13, 2013. Benedict XVI, the German-born leader of the world's 1.1 billion Catholics, made the shock announcement that he would resign on February 28 due to old age. Scherer, ordained cardinal by Benedict XVI in 2007 and who heads Brazil's largest archdiocese with five million Catholics, said in a press conference that nationality and age should not be key factors in choosing who will succeed Benedict XVI.
