Pope Emeritus turns 86

Pope Emeritus Benedict celebrates his 86th birthday today.

Benedict is the oldest Pontiff in over a century and sixth oldest Pope since the 15th century.

He resigned from the papacy February 11 of this year citing a lack of strength in mind and body because of his age.

He served almost eight years, and Pope Francis was chosen to succeed him.
