After a website dedicated to Benedict XVI received thousands of congratulations in 24 languages on the occasion of his 95th birthday this year, the organizers moved to make www.BenedictusXVI.com available in English, broaden its scope — and take it international.
Launched on Aug. 28, the new international version in English aims to provide a “beacon in the stormy seas” of rampant secularization, the Tagespost Foundation announced.
Currently, the site offers a newsletter of inspirational quotes and excerpts from key texts by the noted theologian, biographical notes, background information, and a statement on the Munich report into clerical sexual abuse.
“The goal of the BenedictusXVI.com project is to build an attractive digital knowledge portal that will become the authorized international collection point on the life, thought and work of Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI,” in “cooperation with experts in Germany and abroad,” the organizers told CNA in a written statement.
