Georg Ratzinger, Michael Hesemann

Hardcover, 278 pages.

Por más de 30 años, a Georg Ratzinger se le conocía en los círculos académicos de Alemania como un prestigioso director del coro de niños de la catedral de Ratisbona. El 19 de abril de 2005, adquirió otro título más humilde, pero a la vez más noble: "El hermano del Papa". En esta conversación con el periodista y escritor, Michael Hesemann, Georg Ratzinger cuenta la historia de la estrecha amistad que ha unido a estos dos hermanos por más de 80 años.

Este libro nos ofrece una ventana única a una familia extraordinaria, desde recuerdos de su niñez, su pasión por la música, el período difícil del nacionalsocialismo en Alemania y cómo la guerra fortaleció la voluntad de los dos para dedicar su vida al sacerdocio.

Enriquecido con 47 fotografías, este libro fue escrito para conmemorar el 60 aniversario de la ordenación sacerdotal de los hermanos, la cual celebraron juntos en la basílica de San Pedro en el Vaticano.

Georg Ratzinger nació el 15 de enero de 1924 y fue ordenado sacerdote, junto con su hermano en junio de 1951. Posteriormente estudió Música Sagrada mientras servía a la Iglesia en distintos ministerios para convertirse, de 1964 a 1994, en el director del coro de la catedral de Ratisbona.

Michael Hesemann, historiador, periodista y escritor alemán, ha publicado 34 libros con traducciones a más de 14 idiomas. Es además experto en temas relacionados con la vida de la Iglesia, el Vaticano y el papado.

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 Regensburger Domspatzchor, the world-famous boys choir of the Regensburg 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. This book is a unique window on an extraordinary family that lived through the difficult period of National Socialism in Germany. Those interested in knowing more about the early life of Benedict XVI will not be disappointed. They will also learn of the admirable character and inspiring example of the parents, and see how the Catholic faith can shape not just a family, but an entire culture-in this case, that of Bavaria.

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.

This is not simply a book to satisfy curiosity about a "celebrity", though it certainly does that. It's a beautiful portrait of Catholic family life and, in the most literal sense, of enduring fraternal charity. Georg has a talent for telling a story, and the co-author fills in some of the larger historical background. The many photographs, both in black and white and in color, round out a thoroughly enjoyable and inspirational book. Illustrated with 47 photographs.
