Pope, former students conclude annual seminar
August 29, 2011
Pope Benedict XVI presided at a Mass for his former students on August 29, closing the annual meeting of the Ratzinger Schülerkreis.
The annual meeting of the Pope with his former theology students—which this year was enlarged to include young scholars who had written on the work of Joseph Ratzinger—was devoted to a discussion of the “new evangelization.”
Cardinal Christoph Schönborn of Vienna, one of the Pontiff’s old students, preached the homily at the closing Mass.
