Pope Benedict XVI’s elder brother, Msgr Georg Ratzinger recently made a controversial statement on the choice of the next Roman Catholic Pope.
In an interview on CNN, Msgr Georg Ratzinger said he is sure the next Pope will come from Europe.
He also said Africans are not well known meaning they’re not popular and that they do not have the experience to become Pope yet.
Hear Msgr Georg Ratzinger in his own words below;
“I am certain a Pope will come from the new continents, but whether it would be now I have my doubts, in Europe we have many very able people and the Africans are still not so well known and maybe do not have the experience yet, I believe in later years Popes will come from different countries, different parts of the world, at the moment I believe the Pope should be European”
