Pope Francis visits Benedict XVI to wish him a Merry Christmas

2013-12-24

Christmas is a time for friends and family.  So it makes sense that Pope Francis visited Benedict XVI, to wish him a Merry Christmas.

-Merry Christmas
-It's great to see that you're doing so well
-Thank You
-Merry Christmas


At 86, the Pope emeritus looked healthy and alert. He carried a black cane to help him move along. Together with Pope Francis, they walked into the Mater Ecclesiae chapel, where they stood and prayed.

After talking for a few minutes, Pope Francis individually meet the group of consecrated women who live at the former monastery and help care for Benedict XVI.

Just like old friends, after a good conversation and a warm embrace, the Pope Emeritus walked to the door to thank his guests for the Christmas visit, waiting outside to make sure his friend and Pope, took off safely.
