Vatican City, April 16 - Pope Francis dedicated his
morning mass to Benedict XVI on Tuesday, the retired pontiff's
86th birthday.
"May the Lord be with him, comfort him, and console him,"
said Francis in a prayer at St Martha's House, the Vatican
residence where the Argentine pope has opted to live since
coming to Rome to vote in the conclave that elected him
Benedict's successor last month.
Benedict has been known as pope emeritus since abdicating
the throne of St Peter in February, becoming the first pope to
voluntarily step down in over 700 years.
