Benedict XVI returns to Rome Monday

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI returns to Rome Monday morning, on a state flight from Munich.

Benedict made a surprise trip Thursday morning to Regensburg in Bavaria to spend time with his brother Georg, who is very sick.

Georg Ratzinger, 96, is the only living close relative of Benedict XVI.
