Pope Benedict XVI

His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI (Latin: Benedictus PP. XVI), born Joseph Alois Ratzinger on April 16, 1927 in Marktl am Inn, Bavaria, Germany, was elected the 265th Pope of the Roman Catholic Church on April 19, 2005. By virtue of his office, he is the Sovereign of the Vatican City State. He will be formally installed as the new pontiff during the Mass of Papal Installation on April 24, 2005, although he officially became pope and Bishop of Rome the moment he accepted his election in the conclave.
