Marking Pope Benedict’s 60th anniversary of priestly ordination, a book-length interview , with the Holy Father’s brother, Msgr. Georg Ratzinger, will be released in September.
Zenit.org has posted an interview with the author of My Brother, The Pope, German historian Michael Hesemann. “The Ratzinger Family Secret”, which includes an overview of Joseph Ratzinger’s career and eventual elevation to the Papacy, also details the Ratzinger brothers’ lifelong love of music and Hesemann eloquently describes the Pope’s family as “a family under God” who sought to model their family as “a basic cell of the Church itself.”
