Importance of Cardinal Ratzinger in the Magisterium from 1981-2005
“On several occasions after meeting with his closest collaborators about the drafts of documents and official decisions, John Paul II would say to those closest to him: ‘We have to return to the subject again. It was obvious from his expression that Cardinal Ratzinger is not entirely convinced. We must reflect on it further.’”
