On 29th June, the feast of St Peter and St Paul, our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI will celebrate the sixtyieth anniversary of his priestly ordination. This would be a great occasion in the life of any priest, but in the case of the Pope it is also a great occasion for the whole Church.
Pope Benedict has had an exceptionally distinguished career having held the positions of professor of theology at various universities, Archbishop of Munich & Freising, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Dean of the College of Cardinals and Supreme Pontiff. He is also the author of many learned books.
