[16] Da die Alliierten Eingang seiner näherten sich 1945 setzen, er verlassen Unterstützung zu Hause , um seine Familie in Traunstein nach seiner Einheit zu existieren aufgehört hatte zu, etabliert die richtige amerikanischen Truppen einen Sitz im Haushalt Ratzinger. [17] Als deutscher Soldaten, er in einem Kriegsgefangenenlager in der Internierung geändert, dennoch etwa einem Monat startete danach die brechen des Krieges in Würde möglicherweise vielleicht auch unparteiisch 1945.

Während dieser Zeit nahm er an dem 2d Vatikanischen Konzil (1962-sechzig 5) und diente als peritus (theologische E-Book) an Kardinal Frings von Köln. Er veränderte sich während der ganzen Zeit des Konzils als Reformator, der mit den Theologen zusammenarbeitete, Hans Küng und Edward Schillebeeckx.

1966 wechselte Ratzinger zu einem Lehrstuhl für dogmatische Theologie am Tübinger Hochschule, wo er sich in einen Kollegen von Hans Küng verwandelte. In seinem 1968 ebook Einführung in das Christentum, schrieb er , dass der Papst eine Pflicht , alles zu unterscheiden zu hören hat Stimmen den Entwurf in der Kirche früher als einen Namen zu machen, und er verharmlost die zentrale Bedeutung des Papsttums. Während dieser Zeit distanzierte er sich von der Atmosphäre von Tübingen und den marxistischen Neigungen der Gelehrtenhaufen der 1960er Jahre, die in den Jahren 1967 und 1968 rasch radikalisierten und in einer Kette von Störungen und Unruhen im April gipfelten und vielleicht auch unparteiisch waren 1968. Ratzinger kam immer mehr dazu, diese und die damit verbundenen Trends zu betrachten (ähnlich der Senkung für die Autorität unter seinen Schülern zu schätzen), die mit einer Abkehr von geneigten katholischen Lehren verbunden war. [19] Trotz seiner reformistischen krumm, seine Ansichten mehr und mehr kamen mit den liberalen Lösungen Unterscheidung Kreisen Währung in theologischen gewinnen. [20]

Einige Stimmen, darunter Küng, betrachten dies eine Wende im Gegensatz zum Konservatismus, während Ratzinger selbst in einem Interview von 1993 anerkannt hat: „Ich entdecke keine Beute in meinen Ansichten als Theologe [über die Jahre]“. [21] Ratzinger setzte die Arbeit des 2. Vatikanischen Konzils zu verteidigen, einschließlich Nostra aetate, die Erzählung auf schätzen anderer Religionen, die Ökumene und die Erklärung des angenehm in die Freiheit des Glaubens. Später, als der Präfekt der Kongregation für die Lehre der Religion, Ratzinger am deutlichsten der katholischen Kirche Dilemma auf der anderen Religionen in dem 2000 Erzählung Dominus Iesus buchstabierte die auch Gespräche über die römisch – katholische Formulierung deinen Geist oben auf in „ökumenisch machen Dialog“. Während seiner gesamten Zeit in Tübingen College, enthüllte Ratzinger Artikel in der reformistischen theologischen Zeitschrift Concilium, obwohl er mehr und mehr ausgewählt viel weniger reform Gegenstände als andere Mitwirkenden zum Magazin ähnlich wie Küng und Schillebeeckx.

Die theologische Zeitschrift Communio, mit Hans Vereinigte statesvon Balthasar, Henri de Lubac, Walter Kasper und andere, 1972 Communio, jetzt in siebzehn Sprachen aufgedeckt, darunter Deutsch 1969 kehrte er nach Bayern, an der Hochschule Regensburg und mitbegründet , Englisch und Spanisch, hat sich in eine hervorragende Zeitschrift von so viel wie Datum katholischen theologischen Konzeption. Es sei denn, seine Wahl als Papst, blieb er Konzeption zu einer der entscheidenden Zeitschrift die meisten produktiven Mitwirkenden zu sein. Im Jahr 1976 drängte er, dass das Augsburger Bekenntnis vielleicht pro Chance pro Chance pro Chance als katholische Glaubensbekenntnis anerkannt werden könnte. [22][23] Eine ganze Menge von Benedikts archaischen Studenten wuchs in seine Vertrauten zu variieren, insbesondere Christoph Schönborn, und eine alternative seiner archaischen Studenten die meisten regelmäßig zu Gesprächen treffen. [24][25] Er diente als Vizepräsident der Hochschule Regensburg von 1976 bis 1977. [26]

Ratzinger verteidigte und bekräftigte die katholische Lehre, einschließlich der Lehre über Themen, die der Geburt ähnlich waren, ein Auge behoben, Homosexualität und inter-nicht-säkularen Dialog. Der Theologe Leonardo Boff zum Beispiel veränderte sich in suspendiert, während andere ähnlich wie Matthew Fox persönlich zensiert wurden. Andere Erkrankungen haben auch Verurteilungen oder Widersprüche von Rechten zum Jammern ausgelöst: Zum Beispiel waren einige posthume Schriften des Jesuitenpriesters Anthony de Mello persönlich das Thema einer Benachrichtigung. Ratzinger und die Gemeinde eine Verästelung von ihnen, insbesondere die späteren Arbeiten zu sehen ist , als ein Element von nicht säkularer indifferentism (dh, modifizierte Christus in „einem Master neben anderen“). In explizit, von der Gemeinde im Jubiläumsjahr 2000 erneut bestätigt viele derzeit „unbeliebt“ Lösungen, einschließlich der katholischen Kirche quandary enthüllt Dominus Iesus, dass „ Das Heil in keiner Person Anzeige anders, denn es gibt pro Chance möglicherweise würde nicht mehr andere Name unter dem Himmel, der den Menschen gegeben ist, durch die wir gerettet werden müssen. „ Die Erzählung verärgerte viele protestantische Kirchengebäude, indem sie behaupteten, dass sie nicht mehr in Wirklichkeit Kirchengebäude sind, dennoch „kirchliche Gemeinschaften“. [31]

Ratzingers 2001 Brief De delictis gravioribus klärte die Vertraulichkeit der Innen Kirche Untersuchungen, wie sie in dem 1962 Erzählung Crimen Sollicitationis skizzierte, in Anschuldigungen gegen Priester verschiedenen Verbrechen, einschließlich dem sexuellen Missbrauch. Dies wuchs in ein Feld der Kontroverse alle Blaupause während des Intercourse Missbrauch Skandal variieren. [32] Zwei Jahrzehnte lang hatte Ratzinger der Mann in Zahlung der Durchsetzung der Erzählung gewesen. [33] Die Bischöfe dienen die Geheimhaltung intern betraf erbaulich, und tat nicht mehr preclude Untersuchung von zivilen Vorschriften Durchsetzung, modifiziert der Brief in regelmäßig gesehen als eine Vertuschung zu fördern. [34] Später, als Papst, modifizierte er konspiriert die Belästigungen von drei Jungen in Texas zu Bettdecke auf, dennoch suchte in einer Klage beschuldigt in und erhielt diplomatische Immunität von genehmigter Verantwortung.

Januar 2005 Time Magazine zitiert ungenannte Vatikan Quellen sagen , dass Ratzinger in einen Eingang Läufer geändert Johannes Paul II gelingen würde möglicherweise per Zufall pro Chance unparteiisch distanziert er sterben oder in ändern , in traurig Gesundheit als Papst fortzusetzen. Nach dem Tod von Johannes Paul II, gaben die Finanzen Gelegenheiten die Prozentsatz von Ratzinger Drehen in Papst als 7-1, die Führung quandary, dennoch zu seinen Gegnern auf dem liberalen herunter der Kirche steigen.

Preisreiche Brüder und Schwestern, nach dem gebirgigen Papst Johannes Paul II., Wählten die Kardinäle persönlich einen unkomplizierten, bescheidenen Arbeiter im Weingut des Herrn. Die Wahrheit, dass der Herr weiß, wie man arbeitet und sich mit unzureichenden Geräten verhalten will, tröstet mich, und vor allem vertraue ich mich auf deine Gebete. Innerhalb des Vergnügens des auferstandenen Herrn, der auf seine unerschütterliche Wartezeit vertraut ist, können wir uns vorstellen. Der Herr wird auf uns warten, und Maria, seine Allerheiligste Mutter, wird auf unserer Facette sein. Vielen Dank. [43]

Der Papst erklärte am 16. April 2005 seine eigene Bezeichnung des Namens der ganzen Blaupause durch sein erstes allgemeines Publikum in St. Peter’s Sq.

Gefüllt mit Gefühl von Schreck und Danksagung, schätze ich, um zu konzentrieren, warum ich den Namen Benedict ausgewählt habe. Zuerst nehme ich in Papst Benedikt XV. Den unerschrockenen Propheten des Friedens, der die Kirche durch turbulente Kriegsfälle führte. In seinen Fußstapfen habe ich meinen Dienst im Dienst der Versöhnung und der Solidarität zwischen den Völkern aufgegeben. Außerdem nehme ich den heiligen Benedikt von Nursia, den Mitschützer Europas, dessen Leben die christlichen Wurzeln Europas heraufbeschwört. Ich verlange von ihm, auf uns alle zu warten, um die Gesellschaft zur Zentralität Christi in unserem christlichen Leben zu dienen: Möchte vielleicht auch der unparteiische Christus immer das erste Dilemma in unseren Lösungen und Handlungen berauben!

Es ist Meilen eine Botschaft, die hilft zu schlagen, was möglicherweise pro Chance pro Chance unparteiisch ist auch die Empfängnis, die bergige Versuchung unserer Zeit zu sein: Das Gebot, dass nach dem Monumental Bang Gott aus der Geschichte zurückzog. „ [71] So wird in seinem E – Book Jesus von Nazareth, seine grundlegenden Ursache geändert in „auf Pflege warten [im Leser] die Erweiterung einer mit Wohnsitz Beziehung“ mit Jesus Christus. [70]

He took up this theme in his first encyclical Deus caritas est . In his deepest clarification and abstract of the encyclical, he acknowledged: „If friendship with God becomes for us one thing ever more crucial and decisive, then we’re going so that you can inaugurate to cherish these whom God loves and who are short of us. God needs us to be pals of his pals and we would possibly per chance per chance impartial furthermore be so, if we’re interiorly shut to them.“ [72] Thus, he acknowledged that prayer is „urgently wanted… It’s time to reaffirm the significance of prayer in the face of the activism and the rising secularism of many Christians engaged in charitable work.“

„Dictatorship of relativism“

Continuing what he acknowledged in the pre-conclave Mass about what he regularly assuredly known as the „central be troubled of our faith on the present time“, [73] on 6 June 2005 Pope Benedict also acknowledged:

This present day, a notably insidious obstacle to the process of coaching is the enormous presence in our society and culture of that relativism which, recognising nothing as definitive, leaves as the final criterion edifying the self with its needs. And under the looks of freedom it becomes a jail for every, for it separates other americans from every other, locking every one into his or her enjoy ego. [74]

He acknowledged that „a dictatorship of relativism“ [75] modified into the core be troubled facing the church and humanity. On the root of this be troubled, he acknowledged, is Kant’s „self-limitation of cause“. This, he acknowledged, is contradictory to the as much as date acclamation of science whose excellence is per the energy of cause to know the truth. He acknowledged that this self-amputation of cause leads to pathologies of faith similar to terrorism and pathologies of science similar to ecological mess ups. [76] Benedict traced the failed revolutions and violent ideologies of the 20 th century to a conversion of partial aspects of glance into absolute guides. He acknowledged „Absolutizing what will not be any longer absolute nonetheless relative is called totalitarianism.“ [77]

In an take care of to a convention of the Diocese of Rome held on the basilica of St. John Lateran 6 June 2005, Benedict remarked on the disorders of similar intercourse marriage and abortion:

The many forms of the dissolution of matrimony on the present time, esteem free unions, trial marriages and going as much as pseudo-matrimonies by other americans of the similar intercourse, are rather expressions of an anarchic freedom that wrongly passes for correct freedom of man…from here it becomes all the more obvious how contrary it is to human cherish, to the profound vocation of man and girl, to systematically shut their union to the reward of life, and even worse to suppress or tamper with the life that is born. [78]

Christianity as faith in response to cause

Within the discussion with secularism and rationalism, conception to be one of Benedict’s typical solutions would possibly per chance per chance impartial furthermore be display in his take care of on the „Disaster of Culture“ in the West, a day sooner than Pope John Paul II died, when he referred to Christianity as the Religion of the Logos (the Greek for „observe“, „cause“, „which come“, or „intelligence“). He acknowledged:

From the muse, Christianity has understood itself as the faith of the Logos , as the faith in response to cause… It has always outlined men, all men with out distinction, as creatures and photos of God, proclaiming for them…the similar dignity. In this connection, the Enlightenment is of Christian origin and it is no accident that it modified into born precisely and completely in the realm of the Christian faith….It modified into and is the merit of the Enlightenment to personal again proposed these normal values of Christianity and of getting given support to cause its enjoy reveal… This present day, this must be precisely [Christianity’s] philosophical energy, in up to now as the be troubled is whether or no longer the enviornment comes from the irrational, and cause will not be any longer rather than a ’sub-product,‘ once in some time even injurious of its vogue—or whether or no longer the enviornment comes from cause, and is, as a final consequence, its criterion and aim…Within the so fundamental dialogue between secularists and Catholics, we Christians must be very cautious to dwell faithful to this elementary line: to dwell a faith that comes from the Logos , from artistic cause, and that, on legend of this, would possibly per chance per chance be open to all that is that if reality be told rational. [79]

Benedict also emphasised that „Simplest artistic cause, which in the crucified God is manifested as cherish, can in actuality negate us the formulation.“ [79]

Encyclicals

Pope Benedict wrote three encyclicals: Deus caritas est (Latin for „God is Love“), Spe Salvi („Saved by Hope“), and Caritas in veritate („Love in Truth“). In his first encyclical, Deus caritas est , he acknowledged that a human being, created in the image of God who is cherish, is in a build to discover cherish: to give himself to God and others (agape), by receiving and experiencing God’s cherish in contemplation. This lifetime of cherish, in response to him, is the lifetime of the saints similar to Teresa of Calcutta and the Blessed Virgin Mary, and is the course Christians rob after they suspect about that God loves them in Jesus Christ. [80]

The encyclical contains nearly 16,000 words in 42 paragraphs. The first 1/2 is declared to personal been written by Benedict in German, his first language, in the summer of 2005; the second 1/2 is derived from uncompleted writings left by his predecessor, Pope John Paul II. [81] The narrative modified into signed by Pope Benedict on Christmas Day, 25 December 2005. [82] The encyclical modified into promulgated a month later in Latin and modified into translated into English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese and Spanish. It’s miles the fundamental encyclical to be revealed for the reason that Vatican made up our minds to bid copyright in the legit writings of the pope. [83]

Benedict’s second encyclical titled Spe Salvi („Saved by Hope“), regarding the advantage of hope, modified into launched on 30 November 2007. [84][85] His Zero.33 encyclical titled Caritas in veritate („Love in Truth“ or „Charity in Truth“), modified into signed on 29 June 2009 (the Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul) and launched on 7 July 2009. [86] In it, the Pope continued the Church’s teachings on social justice. He condemned the prevalent monetary machine „where the pernicious effects of sin are evident,“ and called on other americans to rediscover ethics in substitute and economic family. [86]

On the time of his resignation, Benedict had accomplished a draft of a fourth encyclical entitled Lumen fidei („The Gentle of Religion“), [87] supposed to accompany his first two encyclicals to entire a trilogy on the three theological virtues of faith, hope, and cherish. Benedict’s successor, Pope Francis, accomplished and revealed Lumen Fidei in June 2013, four months after Benedict’s retirement and Francis‘ succession. Although the encyclical is officially the work of Pope Francis, paragraph 7 of the encyclical explicitly expresses Francis‘ debt to Benedict: „These considerations on faith — in continuity with all that the Church’s magisterium has pronounced on this theological advantage — are meant to complement what Benedict XVI had written in his encyclical letters on charity and hope. He himself had nearly accomplished a fundamental draft of an encyclical on faith. For this I’m deeply grateful to him, and as his brother in Christ I personal taken up his handsome work and added about a contributions of my enjoy.“ [88]

The high altar of a church modified into assuredly preceded by three steps, under which personal been acknowledged the Prayers on the Foot of the Altar. Side altars assuredly had edifying one step.

On 7 July 2007, Benedict XVI issued the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum , declaring that upon „the query of the faithful“, celebration of Mass in response to the Missal of 1962 (assuredly identified as the Tridentine Mass), modified into to be more with out complications approved. Valid groups who previously had to petition their bishop to personal a Tridentine Mass would possibly per chance per chance impartial now merely query permission from their native priest. [90] Whereas Summorum Pontificum directs that pastors would possibly per chance per chance impartial aloof present the Tridentine Mass upon the requests of the faithful, it also enables for any suited priest to give deepest celebrations of the Tridentine Mass, to which the faithful would possibly per chance per chance very effectively be admitted if they need. [91] For on a typical basis scheduled public celebrations of the Tridentine Mass, the permission of the priest in payment of the church is required. [92]

In an accompanying letter, the Pope outlined his quandary touching on questions regarding the new pointers. [91] As there personal been fears that the transfer would entail a reversal of the 2d Vatican Council, [93] Benedict emphasised that the Tridentine Mass would no longer detract from the Council, and that the Mass of Paul VI would aloof be the norm and priests weren’t approved to refuse to bid the Mass in that originate. He identified that use of Tridentine Mass „modified into by no come juridically abrogated and, as a consequence, in principle, modified into always approved.“ [91] The letter also decried „deformations of the liturgy … because in a entire lot of areas celebrations weren’t faithful to the prescriptions of the new Missal“ as the 2d Vatican Council modified into wrongly seen „as authorising and even requiring creativity“, citing his enjoy skills. [91]

The Pope conception to be that allowing the Tridentine Mass to these that query it modified into a come to forestall or heal schism, pointing out that, on events in history, „no longer ample modified into accomplished by the Church’s leaders to preserve shut or gain reconciliation and cohesion“ and that this „imposes an duty on us on the present time: to set apart every effort to enable for all these that in actuality need cohesion to dwell in that cohesion or to attain it anew.“ [91] Many in actuality feel the decree aimed toward ending the schism between the Holy Survey and traditionalist groups similar to the Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX). Cardinal Darío Castrillón Hoyos, the president of the Pontifical Commission established for the cause of facilitating fleshy ecclesial communion of these associated with that Society, [94] acknowledged that the decree „opened the door for his or her return“. Bishop Bernard Fellay, satisfactory general of the SSPX, expressed „deep gratitude to the Sovereign Pontiff for this mountainous non secular profit“. [90]

Unicity and salvific universality of the Catholic Church

Shut to the discontinue of June 2007, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Religion issued a narrative accredited by Benedict XVI „because some as much as date theological interpretations of Vatican II’s ecumenical intent had been ‚counterfeit or ambiguous‘ and had precipitated confusion and doubt.“ [95] The narrative has been seen as restating „key sections of a 2000 text the pope wrote when he modified into prefect of the congregation, Dominus Iesus .“ [95]

Benedict XVI condemned excessive consumerism, especially amongst formative years. He acknowledged in December 2007 that „[A]dolescents, youths and even children are straightforward victims of the corruption of cherish, deceived by unscrupulous adults who, lying to themselves and to them, plan them into the ineffective-discontinue streets of consumerism.“ [96] In June 2009, he blamed outsourcing for increased availability of particular person goods which consequence in downsizing of social security programs.

The two most excellent circumstances personal been the expansion of the utilization of the Tridentine Mass and the lifting of the excommunication on four bishops from the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX). Within the Fair correct Friday service, the inclined Mass rubrics encompass a prayer that asks God to rob the veil so they [Jews] would possibly per chance per chance very effectively be delivered from their darkness .

Many Islamic politicians and religious leaders registered their assert against what they labelled an insulting mischaracterisation of Islam, though his point of curiosity modified into aimed in opposition to the rationality of non secular violence, and its set apart on the faith. [111][112] Muslims personal been notably offended by this passage that the Pope quoted in his speech: „Uncover me correct what Muhammad introduced that modified into new and there you are going to win things edifying depraved and inhuman, similar to his negate to spread by the sword the faith he preached.“ [112]

The passage before every little thing regarded in the Dialogue Held with a Particular Persian, the Exact Mouterizes, in Anakara of Galatia [113][114] written in 1391 as an expression of the views of the Byzantine emperor Manuel II Paleologus, conception to be one of the crucial closing Christian rulers sooner than the Drop of Constantinople to the Muslim Ottoman Empire, on such disorders as compelled conversion, holy war, and the connection between faith and cause. In accordance with the German text, the Pope’s normal recount modified into that the emperor „addresses his interlocutor in an astoundingly harsh—to us surprisingly harsh—formulation“ (wendet er sich in erstaunlich schroffer, united states of americaüberraschend schroffer Manufacture).

[149][150] In accordance with John L. Allen, Jr., Ratzinger in the following years „obtained a familiarity with the contours of the be troubled that with reference to no other resolve in the Catholic Church can bid“ and „pushed by that stumble on with what he would later focus on to as ‚grime‘ in the Church, Ratzinger looks to personal undergone one thing of a ‚conversion skills‘ all the blueprint through 2003–04. From that time forward, he and his crew regarded pushed by a convert’s zeal to neat up the mess“.

[148] In April, the Vatican issued tips on how gift Church regulations must be implemented.
