Speaking from Rimini, the Archbishop of Vienna Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, confirmed that the meeting will take place September 1-3 in Castel Gandolfo, the Pope’s summer residence.

"Professor Joseph Ratzinger had a great number of students who did their doctorates with him," the cardinal said, "and when he became archbishop of Munich in 1977, some, who had not finished their work, asked if they could continue meeting with him. Since then, the idea arose of an annual meeting with Ratzinger and his doctoral candidates."


"He was one of the German theologians who, as early as the 60s, underlined intensely the need to return to the topic of creation, when theologians were not speaking about it," the cardinal said.
