The pope’s secretary writes a book about trips taken by Benedict XVI

2010-04-19

This year it will be five years since Joseph Ratzinger became Benedict XVI. Five years with Georg at his side.

That is why on this fifth anniversary he has collected in the book the best travel moments and main encounters of the pope.

The book is titled ‘Benedict XVI Urbi et Orbi. With the Pope in Rome and Around the World’. It goes over the most important moments of the pontificate with moving photographs and his most powerful words.

Benedict XVI
“The promotion of human rights remains the most effective strategy for eliminating inequalities between countries and social groups and for increasing security.”

Benedict XVI
“Every effort must be made to combat anti-Semitism wherever it is found, and to promote respect and esteem for the members of every people, tribe, language and nation across the globe.”

The book begins with the historical trip to  Cologne, Germany. Some of the most moving images were seen in the banks of the Rhin and during the mass, at which thousands of youth heard his defiant words.

With this book in your hands, you can join the pope on a trip to Poland, Bavaria, Brazil, Africa and the Czech Republic, the ultimate tour you can take.
