Up Front: Pope Benedict XVI makes his transition into papal retirement at Castel Gandolfo and settles in as Pope Emeritus.

In the Studio:

  • With this unprecedented move by Pope Benedict XVI, where does the church go now? Father Thomas Rausch talks about the possible new direction for the church, what the papacy means for Los Angeles, and how changing demographics in the church might determine a new church leader.

  • The Church of Scientology is an organization cloaked in secrecy, but Pultzer prize-winning author Lawrence Wright uncovered some of that mystery in his new book "Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood and the Prison of Belief"
