Monsignor Georg Ratzinger will share his experiences as the older brother of Pope Benedict XVI in a new book titled, “My Brother, The Pope.”
The elder Ratzinger, the closest family member to the pontiff, recounted his memories to German writer and historian Michael Hesemann. Hesemann will write the book with previously unknown details about the personality of Pope Benedict XVI.
German publisher Herbig Verlang announced on July 18 that it will print the book.
“My Brother, The Pope,” will hit bookstores in Munich in September, coinciding with Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to Germany set for September 22-25.
The 256-page book will be published first in German and will include the memories of Georg Ratzinger from his earliest age up until today.
