From Thursday, the Vatican will have two popes. Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI will return and will be installed in a small refurbished convent. Benedict will return to the Vatican two months after withdrawal.
Living together in the little space of two Popes Vatican protocol creates huge problems so well tuned mechanisms. In addition, there is also another problem. Late Pope’s personal secretary, Archbishop Georg Gaenswein will move along with Benedict. But he will continue to be the prefect of the papal household, responsible for the program of Pope Francis.
Moreover, the second secretary to Benedict, the Rev. Alfred Xuereb, Malta, served as personal assistant to the Pontiff Argentine election to Pope.
