"As the subject of the language of worship was discussed in the Council hall over the course of several days, I followed the process with great attention, as well as later the various wordings of the Liturgy Constitution until the final vote. I still remember very well how after several radical proposals a Sicilian bishop rose and implored the fathers to allow caution and reason to reign on this point, because otherwise there would be the danger that the entire Mass might be held in the language of the people — whereupon the entire hall burst into uproarious laughter."
— Alfons Cardinal Stickler (1997)

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.
