The BBC has compiled answers to 10 of the top questions about the resignation of "His Holiness, Benedict XVI, Pope Emeritus."Shorter version:His Holiness will be Fisherman's Ring-less and red shoe-less, but will continue to wear papal white (in simpler styles). He will have no official duties. He will move into the convent after about 3 months, where he will spend retirement reading, writing, playing piano, eating locally-sourced organic marmalade, and playing with Contessina (a cat). He will bring along excellent medical care and Archbishop Georg Ganswein, but he will leave behind his Twitter handle (@Pontifex) and his infallibility (@assumption1950?).Longer version is here.
