Called to Communion: Understanding the Church Today (Google eBook)
This is a book of wisdom and insight that explains how providential are the trials through which the Catholic Church is now passing. The need of the Papal Primacy to ensure Christian unity; the true meaning of the Priesthood as a sacrament and not a mere ministry; the necessity of the Eucharist as the Sacrifice of the Savior now offering Himself on our altars; the role of the Bishops as successors of the Apostles, united with the successor of St. Peter, the Bishop of Rome; the value of suffering in union with Christ crucified; the indispensable service of the laity in the apostolate - all these themes receive from Cardinal Ratzinger new clarity and depth.

He makes very sophisticated and intelligent arguments, but really he's just going in circles using very abstract and reaching logic. In the end, it's the classic "[X] is tradition because if it didn't deserve to be tradition, then it wouldn't be tradition."
