More recent photos of the beloved Pope Emeritus

Hopefully these public manifestations will soon become quite common and the photos will be easy to find. For now, here are four new images of Pope Emeritus Benedict, to whom all of us involved in liturgical song owe so very much.

A further note: Monsignor Alfred Xuereb, Papal Secretary to both our Holy Father Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict, yesterday gave an address in honor of a new book of Pope Benedict's, on care for creation. From what I gather from the press in languages other than English, the talk was full of fascinating anecdotes.

More to follow.
