Papal Ambassador: No confusion over ‘Pope Emeritus’
Thursday, February 28 2013
ALTHOUGH Pope Benedict XVI’s new title will from today either be “emeritus pope” or “emeritus Roman pontiff”, there is no need for confusion when a new Pope is chosen according to the Vatican’s representative in TT, Papal Nuncio Archbishop Nicola Girasoli.
Pope Benedict delivered his final address yesterday as Pope in St Peter’s Square before thousands of persons in the Vatican city. Pope Benedict who announced his resignation earlier this month said he will cease to be pope at 8 pm Italian time today and will take his new title instead of returning to his name, Joseph Ratzinger. He will continue to wear white cassocks (clerical clothing) but with brown shoes instead of red and will continue living within Vatican walls. His secretary, Georg Gänswein, will live with him in the Vatican and will remain prefect of the papal household.
