    Pope Benedict XVI

    (ANSA) - ROME, DEC 30 - Benedict XVI's condition remains stable and the ex pope is still attending Mass in the former monastery in the Vatican where the ailing 95-year-old German cleric lives, sources close to him said Friday. Benedict XVI's health remains "stable", according to reports from sources in the Mater Ecclesiae Monastery in the wake of Pope Francis entreaties to pray for his predecessor's worsening condition. At the moment no further details have been leaked other than that the Pope emeritus continued Friday morning, in his room and despite the difficulties of a still serious clinical picture, to attend Mass, concelebrating it with his long-time assistant Mgr Georg Gaenswein and simply wearing a light stole over his hospital gown. The four memores domini Vatican officials and the nurse Brother Eligius continue to form around Ratzinger, who is being kept under constant medical supervision by his personal doctor, a cordon of continuous security and assistance, the sources said.

    Pope Benedict XVI

    "Regarding the health condition of the Pope Emeritus, for whom Pope Francis asked for prayers at the end of this morning's general audience, I can confirm that in the last few hours there has been an aggravation due to advancing age. The situation at the moment remains under control, constantly followed by doctors." This was clarified by the director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni: "At the end of the general audience Pope Francis went to the Mater Ecclesiae monastery to visit Benedict XVI. We join him in praying for the Pope Emeritus." Source: Agensir

    I think it's mainly the posture. Let's also keep in mind that the second photo is taken outside in January.

    Recent photo of Pope Emeritus. Seems still healthy for his age.

    To be correct Tarcisio Bertone was the Camerlengo during the Sede Vacante of 2013 not Sodano who was the Dean of the College of Cardinals.
