Pope Francis is breaking with tradition and changing the tone of the papacy, both to the delight and chagrin of the Catholic Church.
Telling his predecessors "we're brothers now," Pope Francis again made history by visiting Pope Benedict XVI at his retreat in northern Italy shortly after his election as the new pope. It was the first time that two living popes had met. in this photo taken April 27, 2014, Pope Francis greets Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI at the end of the Canonization Mass in which John Paul II and John XXIII have been declared Saints in Vatican City, Vatican. Dignitaries, heads of state and Royals from Europe and across the World are to attend the canonisations.
