|"I am the good shephard and I know my sheep, and my sheep know me," St. John 10:14|
|Pope Benedict XVI|
|Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Pope
Benedict XVI, was born at Marktl am Inn, Diocese of Passau (Germany) on 16 April 1927
(Holy Saturday) and was baptised on the same day. His father, a policeman, belonged to an
old family of farmers from Lower Bavaria of modest economic resources. His mother was the
daughter of artisans from Rimsting on the shore of Lake Chiem, and before marrying she
worked as a cook in a number of hotels.
He spent his childhood and adolescence in Traunstein, a small village near the Austrian border, thirty kilometres from Salzburg. In this environment, which he himself has defined as "Mozartian", he received his Christian, cultural and human formation. Website: Pope Benedict XVI
