Benedict vows 'unconditional obedience' to next pope


(see related story)
Vatican City, February 28 - Pope Benedict XVI
pledged obedience to his successor at a meeting of cardinals on
his last day as pontiff on Thursday.
"Among you is the future pope, to whom I promise my
unconditional reverence and obedience," Benedict said.
The outgoing pope added that the support and advice he had
received from the cardinals during the seven years, 10 months
and nine days he has spent as pope were of "great help".
"It has been a joy for me too to walk with you over these
years," Benedict said.
He added that the college of cardinals "should be like an
orchestra in which diversity can lead to synchronous harmony".
Benedict then greeted one by one all of the cardinals, many
of whom were visibly moved.
