About This Website
I am a fan of Card. Ratzinger too. For many years I have thought he has a difficult job in the church for which he has sacrificed his personal ambitions. He is doing the church (all of us) a tremendous service by helping to maintain the doctrines of the church. Let's all pray for him. and congratulations for having the insight to start this fan club. - Huntington, West Virginia
Having been a Calvinist-for-life, well versed in that theology, who was received into the Catholic Church at Easter past, I had prepared by immersing myself, over a matter of many months, almost exclusively in the writings and speeches of Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, and did so with growing amazement and thanksgiving. He epitomizes that wonderful combination of "fortiter in re, suaviter in modo." Generally, I have always suspected that any merit is in direct proportion to the abuse it attracts.

Cardinal Ratzinger is a great man and this site is the begining of the respect he deserves. Lets hope and pray he becomes the next Pope and God bless him.
Cardinal Ratzinger is a splendid man whose devotion to the orthodox truths of the Catholic Faith are an inspiration to us all.Long may he continue zealously to guard and defend our Holy Mother the Church to the confusion of dissenters and heretics.
I find it hard to believe in this day and age that incredibly narrow minded people like Ratizinger and his 'fans' continually ignore the impoverished and disempowered of the world in order to satisfy the their insatiable thirst for power.Would you people please grow up and do something deent with your time and your lives.
A worthy tribute to a great man. Well done!
Is this a joke? This man knows less about God than a pork quantic theory. Use your common sense!
I am a fan of Cardinal Ratzinger's writings. It has helped me greatly in my return journey.
This website is wicked!! Definitely one of the most entertaining I've seen. And the kitsch is just so, mmm-mmm, vunderbar. Long live Prince Ratz. I think the Cardinal would be delighted were he ever to stumble across it.
This is wonderful! I'm so glad Cardinal Ratzinger is emerging as a pop icon on the net as he already is in seminaries. Wunderbar!
What a great site! I am a reporter with a Catholic newspaper and . . . enjoy not only the subtle humor of the site but also its effort to honor "the man," Cardinal Ratzinger. We look forward to more documents from the good Cardinal and wish him long life! By the way, I was thinking of naming a future dog "Ratzinger" as a tribute -- I think that it would be particularly fitting for a tenacious terrier!
Every now and then I would run across these great quotes by this Ratzinger person. I would think, boy that is really right. Go get them heretics Cardinal Ratzinger!
I feel like I'm home. While listening to the radio Mr. Bill O'Reilly said something so cruel about our pope and our beloved Catholic Church, I was beginning to feel like I was out here all alone. THEN...I found Cardinal Ratzinger's website. God Bless You. I will pray for the Cardinal, for you and for your glorious website.
Hi! i am a Christian from Hong Kong, China. I have just finished reading the chinese translation of Cardinal Ratzinger's "Einfuhrung In Das Christendum". It is great! and I think this website is great too. Thank you!
I salute His Eminence, Cardinal Ratzinger, the great defender of church! -- Kerala, India
I hope that you will continue to do well by supporting Cardinal Ratzinger's action. It is very important so as to Catholic people understand that the Doctrine of Faith is unchangeable. But many people are likely to walk to heresy after having "forgotten" the Truth of the Faith. Thanks for your web site. - A french Catholic boy
Anyone in this wonderful chuch of our who lives and ministers in the vision of Vatican II knows full well that this man has done absolutely nothing but destroy the Church and the laity throughout his powerful reign. Wonder how he will answer when asked by God, why did you continually close your ears to the voice of my Spirit. - Newark, DE
I used to be ashamed of my German heritage, due to the many woes the Germans have brought to humanity. Yet one of The Church's Greatest Theologians and (hopefully) saints is our beloved Cardinal Ratzinger. He stands up for those of us who are marginalized by all of the theological abuses in The Church these days. - Perryville, MO
Love your site! -- It's excellent! We need more men like Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger. I would love for him to be elected Pope when that sad day comes when John Paul II can't be with us any more. - Orlando, FL
