1945 to 1951 - Studying for Priesthood
After the war, Ratzinger - along with his brother Georg - returned to their religious studies, studying at the seminary in Traunstein, the Higher School of Philosophy and Theology of Freising, and at the University of Munich. Joseph and Georg were ordained as priests together on the same day in 1951. Above, the young Father Ratzinger celebrates Mass in the mountains of Ruhpolding, southern Germany, in 1952.
