Holy See Press Office Director Matteo Bruni said yesterday, Pope Francis visited the Mater Ecclesiae Monastery in the Vatican where Pope Benedict XVI lives.

During his papacy, Pope Francis has also paid a visit to the pontiff emeritus for Easter, but couldn’t last year due to the pandemic.

“After a brief and affectionate conversation, and after praying together, Pope Francis returned to Casa Santa Marta.”

Benedict XVI was born 1927.

He will celebrate his 95th birthday on Holy Saturday, April 16th.
