Benedict XVI 7th oldest pope in history
I find this video clip pretty amusing. And educational too! I've never thought of comparing the age of the popes in history; who was the youngest, who was the oldest.
Looks like Pope Benedict and John Paul II are both in the Top 10 list.
The 6th oldest pope is Pope John Paul II who lived 84 years, 10 months and 15 days. Pope Benedict would pass John Paul II on 29 February 2012.
At the top of the list, The oldest pope in history was Pope Leo XIII, aged 93 years, 4 months and 19 days. Pope Benedict would have to live to 3 September 10 years from now to pass Pope Leo.
Long live the Pope!!!
