Vatican reforms await new Pope

Next Pope faces challenge to modernise a faith that many believe is out of touch with the modern world.

    Starting on Tuesday, 115 cardinals from around the world will gather at the Sistene Chapel for a secret meeting to elect the next Pope.

    One of the biggest issues the next Pope will face is how to modernise a faith that many believe is out of touch with the modern world.

    Benedict XVI, an intellectual at heart, was often seen as out of touch.
