This inspiring pocket-sized booklet reveals that Pope John XXIII was a person of vision, deep faith, and above all, humility. In his roles as chaplain, diplomat, papal nuncio, bishop, cardinal, and pope, he remained the same humble Angelo Roncalli. When elected Pope at age 77, he humanized the role of the papacy through his openness and good humor.Peek Inside! See a sample of this entire booklet right here.
He surprised the Bishops and Cardinals—and himself—when he convened the Second Vatican Council (1962–1965). He believed that the Church needed aggiornamento
(updating), to “open its doors and windows” to the work of the Holy Spirit in the world.
In this little booklet, we invite you to walk with Pope John XXIII for thirty days, reflecting on his teachings—with related Scripture passages, prayers, and practices—all meant to help you follow in his footsteps. This is a wonderful spiritual guide for celebrating “Good Pope John,” one of our Church’s newest saints!
