Ex-Pope Ratzinger (née Benedict XVI) Turns 90 Tomorrow, April 16, 2017, Easter Day — 4th Time His Birthday Has Been On Easter.

by Anura Guruge



He was born in Marktl, Germany on April 16, 1927 — which was Easter Saturday.

This year, when he turns 90, it will be ON Easter Day.

But his birthday has fallen on Easter Day 3 other years: 1933 (when he was 6), 1995 (when he was 68) & 2006 (when he was 79).

His 2006 birthday, which was on Easter, was his first as Pope!

He was elected pope in 2005, 3 days after his 78th birthday.

Easter 2006. His 79th birthday and first as pope.
