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. It was a holiday at the Vatican and Pope Benedict XVI was speaking in Latin at an arguably boring ceremony announcing new saints, so few people were paying much attention. But what Benedict said a year ago Tuesday changed the course of the 2,000-year-old Catholic Church and paved the way for the historic papacy of Pope Francis. In his soft voice and in a Latin that the cardinals present strained to understand, Benedict announced that he no longer had the "strength of mind and body" to be pope and would retire at the end of the month, the first pope to step down in more than half a millennium. AP

Pope emeritus Benedict XVI, who a year ago became the first pontiff to resign since the Middle Ages, is not “isolated” even though he does not appear in public, Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi said on Monday.
