MILWAUKEE - Catholics began to gather to pray for Pope Benedict XVI in Milwaukee and the College of Cardinals as the Pontiff leaves his role in the Vatican City.

They first came Thursday to Marquette University's Gesu Parish at 6:15 a.m. for Mass.

The College of Cardinals will pick the next Pope, probably during March.

Former Milwaukee Archbishop and current New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan is seen as a potential candidate.
