A recent update on Pope Benedict XVI

A recent Twitter post (on 27 October) with photos of the Pope Emeritus during the visit of the Bishop Stefan Oster (Diocese of Passau, Germany) and journalist Peter Seewald shows that he was “dazzling, full of esprit”.

For the past two months or so, the news that Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI is frail and close to death was being circulated far and wide, not just through the social media but also the popular WhatsApp. The personal secretary of the Pope Emeritus, Archbishop Georg Ganswein was quoted, which read, “Pope Benedict is like a candle that fades slowly. He is serene, at peace with God, with himself and the world. He can no longer walk without help and can no longer celebrate Mass.”

Archbishop Ganswein denied this rumour.
