The body of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI is lying in state at the Vatican ahead of his funeral later this week.
- Tens of thousands of people will pay their respects to the former Pope at St. Peter's Basilica, where he will lie in state through Wednesday evening.
- The funeral will be held Thursday at St. Peter's Square, presided over by Pope Francis.
- Benedict died over the weekend at the age of 95. He stepped down from the papacy in 2013, a move that was nearly unprecedented in history.
