Both Popes appear today

On the day their joint encyclical was issued both Pope Francis and the Pope Emeritus appeared, the occasion was the blessing of a statue of St Michael.

Is it wrong that I see Pope Benedict and feel a confusing mix of emotions. I miss him, I feel angry with him for leaving us, and I feel sad. Mainly I feel confused about what I feel...but beyond that I feel a deep affection for him that I cannot even force myself to feel for Pope Francis. Pope Benedict I love you and pray for you.

I feel the same way Archer. Well, apart from the anger.

I too miss Pope Benedict. He looks even frailer than when last I saw him with Pope Francis.

Ditto Archer, ditto Mikyn Rhizi!

There's something tragic about this photograph. I think it shows discontinuity.

I can't explain it, the filial affection that I had for Pope Benedict XVI, I do not have for Pope Francis...maybe I'm just weary of all extroverts

You can see right through his cassock and he's wearing black kegs underneath!
