Pope Francis leads New Year's Mass as Vatican mourns death of Benedict XVI
Pope Francis prayed for his predecessor’s passage to heaven and again expressed thanks for a lifetime of service to the church, during a New Year’s Day Mass, one day after Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI died in retirement at the Vatican.
Francis presided at the Mass in St. Peter's Basilica as the body of Benedict, who died on Saturday at the age of 95, was being prepared for three days of public viewing in the same church starting Monday.
