2014-04-26

Even though rumors had been swirling for months now, the Vatican officially announced that Benedict XVI will indeed be present in Sunday's canonization ceremony

FR. THOMAS ROSICA 
Vatican's Spokesperson
"Pope Emeritus, Benedict XVI has accepted the invitation of Pope Francis to be present at the canonization ceremony in the Mass. He will not be on the altar with others concelebrating, but he will be off to the side, simply because of his age and the easier space there.”

Benedict XVI, who is 87, will be seated in the front rows along with roughly 150 Cardinals and about 1,000 Bishops. It will be a historic day where four Popes will be present

Since his resignation, Benedict XVI has kept a low profile. Pope Francis however, has convinced him to attend a few public ceremonies, like the last consistory on February 22nd.
