Pope Emeritus Benedict Makes An Appearance

We had a wonderful surprise yesterday as the Pope Emeritus, Benedict XVI, made an appearance alongside Pope Francis.  The Holy Father was dedicating the Vatican to St Michael the Archangel and blessing a new statue in the Vatican Gardens.  Video above.
Pope Benedict looked very good, I must say, much better than he did during the Holy Father's visit to him in Castel Gandolfo a few months ago.  Many had feared for Benedict's health, but it seems he is bouncing back, although his frailty is obvious.  Let us continue to keep him in our prayers.

Some reports on the event: Catholic Culture, Catholic World Report, Zenit.
