Tried the renaissance of Christianity in Europe

Vatican City. Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, who tried to revive Christianity in secular Europe, died on Saturday. He was 95 years old. He breathed his last at 9:34 am on Saturday. Benedict, who belongs to Germany, will be remembered as a religious leader who was the first Christian religious leader in 600 years to resign from the post of Pope.

Benedict shocked the world on 11 February 2013 when he announced that he was no longer able to lead the Catholic Church of 1.2 billion followers. He remained in this position for eight years and during this he had to face many controversies. His resignation paved the way for Pope Francis to be elected to the top post.

Vatican spokesman issued a statement
Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni said in a statement released on Saturday morning, “It is with great sadness that we have to inform that Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI passed away today in the Vatican. More information will be made available as soon as possible.” Significantly, the birth name of Pope Emeritus was Joseph Ratzinger. After resigning from the post, he was living in the monastery located in the Vatican complex. His health was going bad for a long time. The Vatican informed about the Pope’s health on 28 December and said that his condition was getting worse.

Pope Francis appealed to Catholics around the world to pray
At that time, Pope Francis had asked Catholics all over the world to pray for the Pope Emeritus. Let me tell you, with the death of Pope Emeritus, the strange-poverty situation that arose for the first time in the Vatican came to an end. It was the first time that two Popes lived together in the Vatican. It is being told that his last rites will be held in the Vatican. During that time Pope Francis will also be present.
