My Brother the Pope - Interview with Msgr. Georg Ratzinger


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 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. Those interested in knowing more about the early life of Benedict XVI will not be disappointed. 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.
