The introductory verse to The Saints Go Marching In:
"I am just a weary pilgrim, plodding through this world of sin,
getting ready for that city, where the saints go marching in..."
Pope Benedict XVI, arriving at Castel Gandolfo as his papacy ends:
"You know this day is different for me than the preceding ones:
I am no longer the Supreme Pontiff of the Catholic Church,
or I will be until 8 o'clock* this evening and then no more.
I am simply a pilgrim beginning the last leg of his pilgrimage
on this Earth..."
*2:00 p.m. Eastern Time
