Vatican announces Pope's homecoming to Bavaria

THE VATICAN has formally confirmed that Pope Benedict XVI's fourth foreign trip will be a September visit to Germany.

A brief announcement said the Pope will visit Munich,Altotting and Regensburg, all in Bavaria where he comes from, between September 9 and September 14. He served as Archbishop of Munich from 1977 to 1981, when Pope John Paul II named him Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Earlier he taught theology at Regensburg University. His parents are buried in Regensburg, and his brother, Mgr Georg Ratzinger, still lives there. The Vatican has not released a detailed itinerary. Pope Benedict's first papal trip was to Cologne, Germany, in 2005.
