Canadian cardinal Marc Ouellet is surrounded by media as he leaves his Vatican parish church of Santa Maria in Traspontina where he lead the evening mass on March 10, 2013 in Rome, Italy. Cardinals are set to enter the conclave to elect a successor to Pope Benedict XVI after he became the first pope in 600 years to resign from the role. The conclave is scheduled to start on March 12 inside the Sistine Chapel and will be attended by 115 cardinals as they vote to select the 266th Pope of the Catholic Church.
