My Brother, the Pope

 

 

 

It wasn’t always the case that Msgr. Georg Ratzinger lived in the shadow of his younger brother, Joseph. Georg was an accomplished musician, who for over 30 years directed the world-famous boys’ choir of theRegensburg Cathedral. Brother Joseph was a brilliant young professor, but mostly known in German academic circles.

Now Georg writes about the close friendship that has united these two brothers for more than 80 years. Those interested in knowing more about the early life of Benedict XVI will not be disappointed. Georg’s reminiscences are detailed, intimate, and warm. And while they begin with the earliest years of the Ratzinger family, they continue right up to the present day.

“An evocative portrait… sheds new light on the experiences that shaped some of the thinking of Pope Benedict XVI.”
George Weigel, Author, Witness to Hope

“Nobody knows the Holy Father better than his brother, as is evident in this heartwarming and engaging memoir.”
Joseph Pearce, Author, Solzhenitsyn: A Soul in Exile

“Not just a fascinating book but a unique one, as well. We are granted an intimate look at the life of one beloved brother through the eyes of another.”
Fr. Benedict Groeschel, Author, Arise from Darkness

“Msgr. Georg Ratzinger gives a remarkable testimony… a careful and rich account.”
Cardinal Raymond Burke, Prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura

“Georg Ratzinger provides a warm but also honest and very illuminating memoir… from their childhood in Bavariato Georg’s insider view of his brother’s life as pope.”
