“It would be a grave error to imagine that the principle orientation of the sacrificial action is towards the community. If the priest celebrates «VERSUS POPULUM», which is legitimate and often advisable, his spiritual attitude ought always to be «VERSUS DEUM PER JESUM CHRISTUM», as representative of the entire Church.”

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.
