FILE - In this Sept. 9, 2007 file photo Pope Benedict XVI, right, and Austrian Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn arrive at the archbishop's palace in downtown Vienna, Austria. Multilingual and respected by Jews, Muslims and Orthodox Christian, Benedict XVI's friend and former pupil was one of the cardinal electors in the 2005 papal conclave that chose the German as head of the Catholic church. A scholar who is at home in the pulpit, Schoenborn also is well connected in the Vatican and appears willing to make it his home, if reluctantly. Asked if he would like to succeed Benedict on news of the pontiff's plan to step down, he said: “my heart is in Vienna, my heart is in Austria, but naturally with the whole Church as well.” (AP Photo/Robert Jaeger, Pool, File)
