88-page tribute to Pontiff appears in 3 newspapers

Catholic World News - April 24, 2012

Three newspapers--L’Osservatore Romano, the Milan-based financial daily Il Sole 24 ORE, and the Madrid-based daily La Razón-- are publishing Joseph Ratzinger: Teologo e Pontefice, an 88-page tribute to Pope Benedict.

The book-length text, which will soon be made available online in English and other languages, includes a chronology of the Pope’s life, suggested readings from his theological works, and reflections from philosopher Armando Massarenti and journalist Giuliano Ferrara about the Pontiff's thought on the roles of faith and reason.

The text “primarily seeks to introduce the person and then the works of an intellectual who has dedicated and dedicates his life to the research of endless and inexhaustible quest for the truth in a continuous dialogue between faith and reason, with an eloquence that speaks to all,” writes L’Osservatore Romano editor-in-chief Giovanni Maria Vian.

    I truly enjoy the man, Benedict XVI. I could wish that he would be more confrontational with regard to certain elements within our Church, but his deep wisdom and humility surely more than compensate. It would be my wish to have him as a supper guest, speaking English (not Latin) to be certain.
