Pope Francis visits Benedict XVI to wish him a Merry Christmas

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.
