History in the making: brothers in arms

In an historic photograph of a pope and former pope, Pope Francis embraces Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI at the papal summer residence in Castel Gandolfo, Italy, on March 23. The two spent several hours together, sharing prayer, a long meeting and lunch. “We are brothers,” Pope Benedict was told by his successor. This was their first encounter since Pope Benedict resigned on February 28.  Photo: CNS/L'Osservatore Romano via Reuters
