The sun has risen in Vatican City, and people are beginning to gather once again in St. Peter's square to wait and pray. Italian newspapers have reported the Pope's death, but as of right now, the Vatican press office is closed and there has been no official word. Rumors abound that we may get an update at 3 AM EST.
A note that the Pope wrote last night is a comfort to us at this time. "I am happy, and you should be as well. Let us pray together with joy."
