The Pope's body, dressed in pontifical vestments, has been laid in the Sala Clementina in the Vatican. Only senior officials have been allowed in the hall to pay their respects, but the Vatican's television channel has broadcast the images to the world, which is now seeing the dead Pope for the first time. Display of the body began shortly after the conclusion of today's mass. Tomorrow evening, the body will be transferred to St. Peter's Basilica, where it will be available for public viewing by the hundreds of thousands who will come.
