Benedict XVI not ‘isolated’ although ‘no public life’—Vatican spokesman

In this file photo provided by the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano on Feb. 11, 2013, Pope Benedict XVI reads a document in Latin where he announces his resignation, during a meeting of Vatican cardinals, at the Vatican.
