Benedict XVI Last Testament: In His Own Words

Pope Benedict made history by being the first Pope in over 700 years to resign from office. The Catholic Church the world over was stunned. 

Last Testament is nearest to an autobiography from the shy and private man who has remained “hidden to the world” in a former convent in the Vatican gardens. He breaks his silence on issues such as:

  • The “Vatileaks” case in which his butler leaked some of his personal letters that alleged corruption and scandal in the Vatican (the butler remains in jail)
  • The presence of a “gay lobby” within the Vatican and how he dismantled it
  • His alleged Nazi upbringing
  • His attempts at cleaning up the “dirt in the church” (clerical sexual abuse)
  • The mysterious private secretary “Gorgeous George”

On a more personal level he writes with great warmth of his successor Pope Francis, who he admits has a popular touch, a star quality which he has lacked. Much controversy still surrounds Pope Benedict`s Papacy--in this book he addresses these controversies and reveals how at his late age, governing and reforming the Papacy and particularly the Vatican, was beyond him.

Pope Benedict XVI served as pope of the Catholic Church from 2005 to 2013. He was elected pope on April 19, 2005, was inaugurated on April 24, 2005 and resigned from the office on February 28, 2013.

Benedictus: Day by Day with Pope Benedict XVI

With this new book you can start every day with a meditation from Pope Benedict XVI!

Edited by Fr. Peter John Cameron, O.P., (the editor of Magnificat), Benedictus is compiled from books, talks, and homilies by the Pope. In the same richly decorated and beautifully typeset style of the Magnificat missal, this volume gives 366 meditations for the entire year, from January 1st to December 31st.

Each meditation is accompanied by two masterpieces of sacred art, helping you with your prayer and reflection. A hardcover volume with an elegant ribbon marker in papal colors, Benedictus is the perfect gift for any Catholic seeking to know our Holy Father or to deepen their spiritual life.
