The retired pontiff lives in a monastery in the Vatican.

Pope Francis said that his predecessor, Benedict XVI, is very ill, and asked the crowds of worshipers in the Vatican to pray for him.

Pope Benedict, 95, is the first Pope of the Catholic Church to step down in 600 years, due to his advanced age, in 2013.

Pope Francis, at the end of the last meeting this year, asked people to offer a “special prayer to Pope Benedict”.

The Vatican added that the health of the former pope had deteriorated in the past hours.
