    ‘Pope Francis is expected to personally welcome the Pope Emeritus when he returns to the Vatican this evening.’

    God bless our Pope! Yip! Both of them. And if Pope Francis does indeed complete and issue Pope Emreitus Benedict XVI’s last Encyclical, under his own plenitude of power, I shall be more than delighted. Thank the dear Lord for such a witness.

    Forgive me for asking, I am not a Roman Catholic hence not acquainted with the on going issues, however I have a great interest in the Church, could you kindly give me some more information concerning the Pope Emeritus last Encyclical? I greatly appreciate the help you will be able to afford me with. Many Christian regards
