"My idea is that really the springtime of the Church will not say that we will have in a near time buses of conversions, that all peoples of the world will be converted to Catholicism. This is not the way of God. The essential things in history begin always with the small, more convinced communities." (Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger interview, aired on 5 September 2003)
Ordained into the priesthood on 29 June 1951.
