Prominent Germans collaborate in book on Pope Benedict

Catholic World News - April 12, 2012

Twenty prominent Germans have contributed to a collection of essays on the pontificate of Benedict XVI.

During an April 9 visit to the Vatican, Edmund Stoiber, the former minister-president of Bavaria, presented the Pontiff with a copy of the book, Benedikt XVI—Prominente über den Papst. The volume includes essays not only by Catholic leaders like Cardinals Kurt Koch and Joachim Meisner, but also secular figures like German finance minister Wolfgang Schauble and soccer legend Franz Beckenbauer.

The book—with a preface by Msgr. Georg Ganswein, the Pope’s private secretary—appears in print just before the Holy Father’s 85th birthday, which will fall on April 16.
