Benedictus PP. XVI

Last time

Holy Father Benedict XVI during the Holy Mass on the Feast of the Epiphany celebrated in 2013 in the Basilica of St. Peter in the Vatican, during which he ordained four bishops, among others, his secretary and the Prefect of the Papal Household, fr. Georg Gänswein. It was the only celebration during which the pope was dressed in a Roman chasuble and fanon at the same time, and it was also the last solemn liturgy – just over a month later, Benedict XVI announced his resignation from the office [photo: Reuters/Rossi].
