    Will he go to an old age home, will he become bishop of some titular diocese? Will he become a civilian?

    The precedents are so old (Peter of Morone was thrown in prison and starved to death) that they no longer matter. This is an unprecedented situation. No one knows what will happen except that the Conclave will start on March 1st.
