Pope Benedict XVI

The road to the Papal Office has been a long one for Pope Benedict XVI. At the age of 78, Pope Benedict was the oldest Cardinal to be elected Pope since Pope Clement XII in 1730. The Pope originally planned on retiring with his brother Georg in his homeland of Germany, however the Lord obviously had other plans for him!
