The statues on the colonade of St Peter's Basilica at the Vatican are seen on February 12, 2013, one day after after it was announced that Pope Benedict XVI will resign. The Catholic Church entered uncharted waters the same day after Pope Benedict XVI's shock announcement the day before that he would become the first pontiff to resign in more than 700 years.
