Exhibit commemorating Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI’s 70 years as a priest opens in Rome

Benedict XVI’s personal secretary, Archbishop Georg Ganswein, inaugurated an exhibition in Rome to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Joseph Ratzinger’s ordination to the priesthood and his first Mass, which took place in Bavaria on June 29, 1951. The initiative was promoted by the Vatican’s Joseph Ratzinger-Benedict XVI Foundation, the Pontifical Committee for Historical Sciences and the Museum of the Popes. This exhibition contains objects that belong to Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, leaving his residence at the Mater Ecclesiae Monastery for the first time, and photographs that cover the life of Joseph Ratzinger. The initiative will be open to the public beginning June 29 at the Arte Poli Gallery at 88 Borgo Vittorio street in Rome.
