The representative Protestant collection, entitled “Hymns, Ancient and Modern”—in substance a compromise between the various sections of conflicting religious thought in the Establishment—is a typical instance. That collection is indebted to Catholic writers for a large fractional part of its contents. If the hymns be estimated which are taken from Catholic sources, directly or imitatively, the greater and more valuable part of its contents owes its origin to the Church.
— Orby Shipley (1884)

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI Welcomed By Pope Francis
published 2 May 2013 by Corpus Christi Watershed

The following comes from the New York Daily News:

OPE Francis welcomed his retired predecessor back to the Vatican as Benedict XVI arrived by helicopter Thursday at his new home — right next door.

The emeritus pope, who stepped down Feb. 28, will take up residence in a converted four-story monastery off the Vatican gardens — a 57-acre stretch surrounded by stone walls.

Benedict and Pope Francis prayed together in a chapel adjoining the retirement home on the first day of their unprecedented arrangement: A retired pontiff living alongside the reigning pope.
