Pope Geeks: take note!


Great things are happening!

Pope Benedict XVI is due to release two books this spring. The first is the long-awaited Jesus of Nazareth: From the Baptism in the Jordan to the Transfiguration. I forgot to blog them at the time, but in November Sandro Magister had an English translation of a review of the book by papal household preacher Raniero Cantalamessa and in January he had an English translation of the book's preface.

The second book is the one that has caused a crapstorm this week. Apparently it's news that an 80-year old German Catholic priest has reservations about American rockers. The real story is that the Pope is publishing a book about his predecessor. The name of the book is John Paul II, My Beloved Predecessor and the Italian edition is being published next week.
