Ratzinger's new book
I received my copy of Cardinal Ratzinger's new book, God Is Near Us, today, and -- surprisingly -- I'm a little disappointed.
As it turns out, the volume is a collection of previously-unpublished essays of Ratzinger's related to the Eucharist; they range over a wide period of time, from the 70's to the 90's.
Don't get me wrong: I know that it's great stuff. It's just not what I expected, that's all.
