Vatican City, March 1 - Benedict XVI slept well
during his first night as a former pope, Vatican spokesman
Father Federico Lombardi said on Friday.
"I had a nice telephone conversation with (Benedict's
personal secretary Georg) Gaenswein, who was very relaxed, and
he said that both he and the Holy Father slept very well,"
Lombardi told reporters.
Benedict's time as pontiff ended at 20:00 Italian time on
Thursday after he shocked the world earlier last month by saying
he was stepping down because he did not have the mental and
physical strength to continue leading the Catholic Church.
He left the Vatican just after 17:00 and flew by helicopter
to the papal summer retreat in Castel Gandolfo outside of Rome.
He will stay at Castel Gandolfo for two months, after which
he will go to live at a monastery inside the Vatican that is
currently being renovated.
