VATICAN CITY — Pope emeritus Benedict XVI returned by helicopter to the Vatican on Thursday two months after his historic resignation to live in a former monastery, Italian media said.

The former pontiff, who is 86 and was looking extremely frail in his last public appearance in March, will live just a stone’s throw away from his successor Pope Francis.

    HANDA ng makisawsaw si Ratzy kay Francis. BAKA hindi na makatiis at nami-miss nya ang palakpakan ng mga sheeple. SIGRO naisip nya na 2 heads are better than 1. Pero, papaano na yan…..mabibisto na nagkamali ang diyos nila sa pagpili ng magiging ulo ng samahan. Yong unang pinili na si Ratzy ay gumib-ap at nagbitiw…..ngayon naman, ang bagong pili KUNO ay si Francis. Pero kung gugustuhin ni Ratzy na maging ulo din, e, dalawa na ang ulo. Parang sawa na dalawa ulo! :) Medyo nakakalito ang nangyayari sa RCCh. Sulong-Urong. Alis-Balik. Magmo-mongha KUNO, makikisalamuha na ngayon. Parang CBCP.
