Pope Benedict XVI waves from his popemobile as he arrives for the traditional prayer to celebrate the Immaculate Conception, in Rome, Wednesday Dec. 8, 2010. Pope Benedict XVI inaugurated the Christmas season in Rome with his traditional visit to the posh Spanish Steps neighborhood to pray before a statue of Mary. Throngs of shoppers, tourists and Romans alike jammed the rain-slicked cobblestones around the piazza to catch a glimpse of Benedict as he marked the Catholic Church's feast of the Immaculate Conception.
