Benedict XVI returning to Vatican on May 2

Catholic World News - April 30, 2013

Pope-emeritus Benedict XVI will move into his new residence at the Vatican on May 2, rather than May 1, the Vatican has announced.

Correcting earlier reports about the retired Pope's plans, Father Federico Lombardi, the director of the Vatican press office, told reporters that Benedict XVI will make his return to the Vatican on Thursday. The former Pontiff, who has been living at Castel Gandolfo since his resignation took effect on February 28, will occupy the ground floor of a monastery that has been remodeled to accommodate him and his small domestic staff.
