Pope Benedict XVI leaves at the end of the Ash Wednesday mass in St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican, Wednesday. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, a solemn period of 40 days of prayer and self-denial leading up to Easter. Pope Benedict XVI told thousands of faithful Wednesday that he was resigning for "the good of the church", an extraordinary scene of a pope explaining himself to his flock that unfolded in his first appearance since dropping the bombshell announcement. Below, Marc Johnson in The Johnson Report discusses the endurance of the Catholic Church. (AP Photo/Gregorio Borgia)
