Filipino Catholics pray during a mass at the Shrine of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in suburban Paranaque, south of Manila, Philippines on Sunday March 3, 2013. Pic: AP.Filipinos in Asia’s largest predominantly Roman Catholic nation  went to church last March 4 that awkwardly had no pope for the first time in 600 years and prayed for the smooth rise of a successor to Benedict XVI who can lead an embattled church.

Benedict stunned the world when he announced Feb. 11 he would resign, citing his age and frail health. His resignation, which took effect last Feb. 28, ushered in a period known as “sede vacante” or “vacant see” – the transition period between papacies when a few Vatican officials take charge of running the church.
