Benedict to mark 65th anniversary as priest amid confusion


VATICAN CITY - Retired Pope Benedict XVI will mark his 65th anniversary as a priest at a Vatican ceremony June 28 attended by Pope Francis amid fresh confusion over the roles played by the current and former pontiffs.


The Joseph Ratzinger Foundation, a Vatican-based foundation dedicated to promoting the works of the emeritus pope, said on its website Wednesday the ceremony would be held in one of the Vatican's main reception halls.


It will be a rare outing for the 89-year-old Benedict, who has largely kept to his promise upon retirement to remain "hidden" from the world in prayer.
