VATICAN CITY: Pope Francis on Saturday paid tribute to his “dearest” predecessor Benedict XVI, who died earlier in the day aged 95.
“With emotion we remember a person so noble, so kind,” Francis said at a New Year’s Eve service in St Peter’s Basilica, offering thanks “for all the good he has done” and underlining “his sacrifices offered for the good of the church”.
