"I hope this shows that from the very start, the foundation has considered not only Catholics, but all believers. This awards shows, that many people love Jesus, not just those in the Catholic Church. When we told Burridge that he had won the prize, he was very surprised, excited and astonished. He thought it was a great honor. It's nice to know that he, as an Anglican, is still excited to receive the award. He recognizes that it is indeed a great honor."

Pope Francis will personally give the award to the two recipients on October 26, during a Ratzinger Foundation Congress. The topic of that meeting will be on  Benedict XVI's trilogy on Jesus of Nazareth.

"I think the field of theology has taken a great interest in his work. Benedict XVI's writings are a way to renew how Christians see Christ, through an intellectual point of view. This will help readers in their spirituality, giving them the opportunity to enjoy this book further.”

These will be the first Ratzinger awards to be given out, after Benedict XVI's resignation. It's unknown if he will take part in any of these events, but organizers say, he will more than likely send a message.
