More About Pope Benedict XVI

Pope Benedict XVI Benedict XVI (Latin: Benedictus XVI; born Joseph Aloisius Ratzinger on 16 April 1927) is Pope emeritus of the Catholic Church, having served as Pope from 2005 to 2013. In that position, he was both the leader of the Catholic Church and sovereign of the Vatican City State. Benedict was elected on 19 April 2005 in a papal conclave following the death of Pope John Paul II, celebrated his papal inauguration Mass on 24 April 2005, and took possession of his cathedral, the Archbasilica of St. John Lateran, on 7 May 2005.

Ordained as a priest in 1951 in his native Bavaria, Ratzinger established himself as a highly regarded university theologian by the late 1950s and was appointed a full professor in 1958. After a long career as an academic, serving as a professor of theology at several German universities—the last being the University of Regensburg, where he served as Vice President of the university in 1976 and 1977—he was appointed Archbishop of Munich and Freising and cardinal by Pope Paul VI in 1977, an unusual promotion for someone with little pastoral experience. In 1981, he settled in Rome when he became Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, one of the most important dicasteries of the Roman Curia. From 2002 until his election as pope, he was also Dean of the College of Cardinals, and as such, the primus inter pares among the cardinals. Prior to becoming pope, he was "a major figure on the Vatican stage for a quarter of a century" as "one of the most respected, influential and controversial members of the College of Cardinals"; he had an influence "second to none when it came to setting church priorities and directions" as one of John Paul II's closest confidants.

He was originally a liberal theologian, but adopted conservative views after 1968. His prolific writings defend traditional Catholic doctrine and values. During his papacy, Benedict XVI advocated a return to fundamental Christian values to counter the increased secularisation of many Western countries. He views relativism's denial of objective truth, and the denial of moral truths in particular, as the central problem of the 21st century. He taught the importance of both the Catholic Church and an understanding of God's redemptive love. Pope Benedict also revived a number of traditions including elevating the Tridentine Mass to a more prominent position. He renewed the relationship between the Catholic Church and art, viewing the use of beauty as a path to the sacred, promoted the use of Latin, and reintroduced traditional papal garments, for which reason he was called "the pope of aesthetics". He has been described as "the main intellectual force in the Church" since the mid-1980s. Several of Pope Benedict's students from his academic career are also prominent churchmen today and confidantes of him, notably Christoph Schönborn.

On 11 February 2013, Benedict announced his resignation in a speech in Latin before the cardinals, citing a "lack of strength of mind and body" due to his advanced age. His resignation became effective on 28 February 2013. He is the first pope to resign since Pope Gregory XII in 1415, and the first to do so on his own initiative since Pope Celestine V in 1294. As pope emeritus, Benedict retains the style of His Holiness, and the title of Pope, and will continue to dress in the papal colour of white. He was succeeded by Pope Francis on 13 March 2013, and he moved into the newly renovated Mater Ecclesiae monastery for his retirement on 2 May 2013.

Pope Benedict XVI was born in 1927.

Pope's Catechesis on Paul  Oct 27, 2008
Pope Benedict XVI has proclaimed June 2008 as the opening of a Jubilee year to commemorate the bimillennium of the Apostle Paul's birth. This new work draws on excerpts from the Holy Father's writings, speeches, and homilies that highlight his catechesis on St. Paul, the patron of his pontificate. In his introduction, editor Edmund Caruana, O.Carm., describes this volume of Papal reflections as a window into Paul's "extraordinary witness of faith in a humanity redeemed by Christ." Paul made Christ the center of his life and participated personally in the life of Christ. "Pope Benedict constantly invites us to imitate Paul, drawing on the exhortation left by the Apostle to be imitators of him, as he was of Christ," writes Caruana.

The 159 "spiritual thoughts" are grouped under seven chapters: the apostolic vocation, the encounter with Jesus, life in the Spirit, the Christian experience, the Church of God, the sacraments, and pray without ceasing. Each chapter consists of two-to-five titled excerpts followed by space for personal reflection.

The following examples are taken from the Pope's reflections on Paul's teachings on fruits of the Spirit and the theological virtues. "To the Galatians (Paul) was to indicate forcefully that the whole law finds its fullness in the one precept of love..." Citing Paul's exhortation to "encourage one another," Benedict describes specific acts of love: complementing one another, helping one another see ourselves better, and correcting each other.
