New pope to visit Benedict next Saturday

VATICAN CITY – The Vatican says Pope Francis will visit his predecessor next Saturday.

The Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi said Francis will call on Benedict XVI at the Castel Gandolfo papal retreat in the hills south of Rome.

The visit will be significant given the novelty of having a reigning and retired pope side-by-side. Benedict resigned Feb. 28, the first pontiff in 600 years to step down. Francis was elected on Wednesday.
