Ole Miss professor speaks about Pope Benedict's farewell | News
The conclave is beginning the process of choosing the next pope.
It was an inspiring moment Thursday morning as the Pope left the Vatican to allow the cardinals time to make the best decision.
You could see a chopper flying into the sunset as the Pope left his office as the head of the catholic church.
It's a historic moment, the first time in hundreds of years that a pope has voluntarily stepped down.
Ron Rychlak has worked for the Pope at the United Nations mission for several years.
He was there during the last papal transition from John Paul II to Benedict XVI.
Now he's a law professor at the University of Mississippi.
"I wouldn't be surprised seeing someone on the younger side," said Rychlak in an interview with Action News 5's Pam McKelvy on the pope picking process.
