Happy Birthday to Benedict’s Brother

Today is the 90th birthday of Monsignor Georg Ratzinger, the older brother of Pope-Emeritus Benedict XVI. Ad multos annos!

This morning, he had Mass with his brother in his residence in the Vatican gardens. Then there was a special breakfast and later, a special lunch in his honor. This afternoon, the brothers will attend a small concert in the Vatican, both being great lovers of music.

You will recall that Fr. Ratzinger was recently in the hospital here in Rome. Say a prayer for him on his birthday!
