Rare meeting between Pope Francis, retired Pope

05 July, 2013 - Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI shared some rare moments together Friday morning and remained close to each throughout at a ceremony in Vatican City. The occasion was the inauguration of a new monument to St. Michael the Archangel in the Vatican gardens, and the consecration of Vatican City State to St. Joseph and St. Michael the Archangel. The Pope Emeritus, invited by Pope Francis, arrived at the scene a little before the start of the ceremony, and was warmly greeted by those present. Soon Pope Francis arrived and the two embraced each other affectionately and sat close to each other throughout the ceremony in front.
