Vatican strongly reacts to episcopal ordinations in China made without pope's permission

November 7, 2016. "In recent weeks, there has been a series of reports regarding some episcopal ordinations conferred without Papal Mandate of priests of the unofficial community of the Catholic Church in Continental China,” explains the Vatican in a letter signed by the Director of the Holy See Press Office, Greg Burke.

When the Pope visited Benedict XVI at his Vatican residence, they got to catch up just like old friends. They met for about 30 minutes, but there was still lots more to talk about. That's why during that brief get-together, Pope Francis invited Benedict XVI to lunch.

On Friday afternoon, Ratzinger made a short trip to Casa Santa Marta to have lunch with the Pope. At age 86, this is actually the first time Benedict XVI has publicly gone to the Pope's residence to meet him. Usually it's Pope Francis who goes out to visit him. 

In the past, Pope Francis has publicly said he enjoys having Benedict XVI around the Vatican, describing him as a wise grandfather

At lunch, they were each joined by their personal secretaries as well as Archbishop Dominique Mamberti who serves as the Secretary for Relations with States and also Msgr. Peter Brian Wells from the Secretariat of State.
