Pope Benedict



REST IN PEACE, POPE BENEDICT XVI

The Catholic world was saddened on the morning of New Year’s Eve to learn of the passing of Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI at age 95. Born Joseph Ratzinger in Bavaria in Southern Germany in 1927, he was ordained a priest at the same time as his brother George in 1951. He spent more than 70 years as a priest, and 45 of those were spent as a Bishop, then a Cardinal and eight years as the 265th successor of St. Peter.
