Pope`s Brother Tells All

30 09 2008

Sorry for the tabloid style headline however Georg Ratzinger does share some wonderful comments about his brother Benedict in this article

An excerpt.

During the interview in Ratisbona, Germany, Msgr. Ratzinger said his brother was “a lively child, but not an earthquake. I remember him as always being joyful.  From the time he was a child he showed a great sensitivity to animals, flowers and in general to all nature. Perhaps that’s why he was always given pets as Christmas gifts.  His care for nature and for living beings was characteristic of him.”

Msgr. Ratzinger said he was “disappointed” when his brother was elected Pope, because “this meant we would have to significantly reconfigure our relationship,” because they would not be able to see each other much.  “In any case, after the human decision of the cardinals, this is the will of God and we must say yes to it.”

Later Msgr. Georg said, “Some years ago my brother told me, ‘Benedict would be a good name for a new Pope.’ Now he doesn’t remember having said it, but I very much do.”
