June 4, 2021: Mons. Stefen Oster, the Bishop of Passau announced that he had the opportunity to visit Pope Benedict XVI today. He said on his Facebook page, where he posted the above photo:
And I am also very grateful for this cordial and fraternal encounter this morning. Papa emerito, son of our diocese, is wide awake in conversation – even when his physical strength is failing. He is also a close observer of the situation of the Church in Germany and, above all, a faithful prayer warrior for us in Germany and in our diocese.
