Benedict XVI follows new Pope Francis's inauguration on TV

Vatican City, March 19 - Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI followed the inauguration mass of his successor, Pope Francis, on television from the papal summer residence on Tuesday. The former pope, who shocked the world by abdicating in February due to diminishing mental and physical strength, is staying at Castel Gandolfo south of Rome pending his transfer to new living quarters in a monastery at the Vatican. Benedict's closest aides were all at the Vatican in the service of the new Argentine pope.
