Today’s topics: Pope St. John XXIII
Summary of today’s show: As we prepare for the canonization of two popes this weekend, Fr. Roger Landry and Scot Landry discuss the pope who died before most Catholics alive today were born, Pope St. John XXIII. Most people know that “Good Pope John” opened the Second Vatican Council, but what about the rest of his saintly life? We learn about his humble origins, his military service in World War I, his work in diplomatic service, his time as Patriarch of Venice, and ultimately his short time as Bishop of Rome.
