Thousands bid farewell to pope

[Updated at 6:59 a.m. ET] In his final general audience, Pope Benedict XVI told tens of thousands of people in St. Peter's Square about his own spiritual journey through eight years as pontiff.

Dressed all in white and looking serene, the leader of the world's 1.2 billion Catholics called for a renewal of faith.

As he finished, cheers erupted from the crowd in the square - acknowledged by Benedict, who is steeping down tomorrow, with an open-armed embrace.
