Pope Benedict XVI (Latin: Benedictus XVI; Italian: Benedetto XVI; German: Benedikt XVI; born Joseph Aloisius Ratzinger; German pronunciation: ; 16 April 1927) is a retired prelate of the Catholic Church who served as head of the Church and sovereign of the Vatican City State from 2005 until his resignation in 2013.

The newly elected Benedict XVI returns to his homeland, Germany, for World Youth Day-the spectacular event created by his popular predecessor, Pope John Paul II. All eyes are on the German pope in Cologne. Will he relate to young people as John Paul II did?" The zealous loving welcome of more than a million young people provides the answer. Benedict XVI pulls it off-in his own way, with his own style, without missing a beat. His encounters with young people are magical, even mystical.

Benedict's theology underwent developments over the years, many of which were characterized by his leadership position in the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which is entrusted with preserving the Catholic faith in its entirety.

The following is a list of Papal encyclicals written by Pope Benedict XVI. A Papal encyclical is a letter usually treating some aspect of Catholic doctrine sent by the Pope and addressed to Catholic bishops.

God's Revolution by Benedict XVI (Ignatius Press, 2006), the collection of his World Youth Day talks and other addresses in Cologne, only adds to the amazement.

Pope Benedict had a magical encounter with over one million youth at World Youth Day in Cologne, Germany in August. God's Revolution : Pope Benedict XVI at World Youth Day.

Pope Benedict had a magical encounter with over one million youth at World Youth Day in Cologne, Germany in August. He also had important separate meetings of significance with Jewish leaders, another with Muslim leaders, and a third Ecumenical meeting with Protestant leaders.This book includes all the texts of his talks to the youth over that five day period, as well as to these other groups in Cologne.

The Pope's inspiring words and messages to the young people were enthusiastically received, and comprise an important collection of talks for young people everywhere, and indeed for all followers of Christ.This 20th World Youth Day had a new point of reference: Pope Benedict XVI. It was the first that Pope John Paul II had not been at. But this collection fittingly begins with John Paul's closing talk at WYD in 2004. Yet Benedict stamped this World Youth Day with his own personal style, with his gentleness and joy, and profound words about Christ's love that the youth responded to with great exuberance.

The theme of this great gathering was "We Have Come to Worship Him." Throughout these talks and encounters with the youth, Benedict reinforced the meaning of this theme by leading us to adore the Child who is God, whose love renews and transforms the whole world. Radiating from this book, as from World Youth Day, is a sheer joy over the beauty of faith, the beauty of Christ and of our life in Christ. Reading this book reinforces the conviction that, in the person of Pope Benedict XVI, God has given the Church a great Teacher of the faith, and also a great Pastor who knows the way that can lead us to intimacy with God. His special charism seems to be his ability to combine universal openness with Catholic identity, clear and comprehensive witness to the truth of Christ with the gentleness of fraternal charity.

What can I say - a great book written by a great man !

First, I love how these collection of World Youth Day 2005 addresses and homilies have become known as the "Cologne Talks." Like Francis 8 years later in Rio for WYD 2013, Cologne was Benedict's first trip outside Italy as pontiff. Not knowing how much time he would have in his papacy, it is said the Cologne Talks are his most personal of his 3 WYD trips. In his homily at the closing Mass he said, "Anyone who has discovered Christ must lead others to him. A great joy cannot be kept to oneself. It has to be passed on." This kind of line can be found again and again in Ratzinger's works, particularly in his memoir Milestones.

The talks also both humanize Benedict to audiences who otherwise might be unfamiliar or distrustful of him thanks to the media, and also reveals his focus as pastor of the universal church: re-connect the faith, particularly the young faith, with a renewed relationship with Christ. That in itself is the revolution he is summoning.

Hopefully one enjoys the "Cologne Talks" as Benedict speaking in a one-on-one conversation with the reader. If taken seriously as an invitation, they might just change one's life.
