Pope Benedict the 16th's Papacy Takes Shape

Pope Benedict the 16th has a busy weekend ahead of him. The new pontiff is set to meet with cardinals tomorrow. The next day he's to hold a news conference. And all of that comes before his inauguration service, which takes place Sunday.

Yesterday, he led his first mass as pope, where he said he intends to seek "an open and sincere dialogue" with other faiths. Later in the day he broke the seal of John Paul's former apartment. The studio overlooking St. Peter's Square was sealed after the pope's death.

Yesterday the new pope entered it and signed some papers. However, Vatican officials say he's still living with cardinals in a Vatican hotel.
