Catholic matchmaking


News Item from Germany: Pope Benedict's father was a "low-level civil servant" and already 43 when he placed an advertisement in a Bavarian newspaper for "a good Catholic girl, who can cook and sew a bit and to marry as soon as possible, preferably with a picture". That was in March 1920. Four months later Joseph Ratzinger senior, by then a "mid-ranking civil servant", advertised again and this time got a reply from Maria Peintner, who became the mother of the future Pope and two other children.
