Pope Benedict XVI finds Pope Francis’ trip to iraq dangerous

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, who has retired to a Vatican monastery since his resignation, finds the trip to Iraq of his successor, Pope Francis, dangerous.

“I think this is a very important trip. He comes unfortunately at a very difficult time which also makes his trip dangerous: for security reasons and because of the Coronavirus pandemic. And then there is the unstable Iraqi situation. I will accompany Francis with my prayers, «  said the German Pope Emeritus in an interview with the daily Il Corriere della Sera.
