Rome, March 19 - Pope Francis phoned Benedict XVI
on Tuesday shortly after 5pm to wish him well for St Joseph's
day, the pope emeritus' saint day, Vatican sources said.
Francis, who was inaugurated earlier Tuesday becoming the
266th pope, called Benedict to offer his "best wishes on the
occasion of the name day of St Joseph, to show his gratitude,
and that of the Church, for his service," the Vatican press
office said.
He also paid tribute to his predecessor at the
inauguration mass of his papacy.
"It is a coincidence rich with significance that today is
also the feast of my venerated predecessor, to whom we are close
in prayer, full of affection and gratitude," Francis said.
