Great to find out that the Pope has a brother who was also a priest and a choral director. The two of them survived the Nazis as young soldiers who were already in seminary. Georg and Joseph were and still are Godly men who grew up in extremely devout Bavarian family. I wish Georg had reflected more on why the German people embraced Hitler and how they condoned such violent anti-Semitism (even though their father and church leaders took bold stands against the Nazis).
