Pope Francis offers the Pope Emeritus his Christmas greetings

24 Dec, 2016 | News

Pope Francis has visited the Pope Emeritus, Benedict XVI, to convey to him his Christmas greetings.

The visit took place on Friday afternoon, when Francis knocked at the door of the “Mater Ecclesiae” monastery in the Vatican where Benedict resides.

As they do each year during the Christmas season, the two men spent some time together, first in prayer and then in conversation.

The Pope’s gesture and good wishes for Holy Christmas are part of the simplicity of a daily relationship that exists between the Holy Father and the Pope Emeritus.
