5.0 out of 5 stars The Pope John we hardly know 25 July 2014
By John Wintermyer - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
One really has to understand the historic background of this most wonderful modern saint. His humble family background which he never tried to hide. Such wonderful and simple people. Then the historical experiences of his ministry life, especially those early years, even his military service in WWI. The years of diplomacy which were nothing that he desired. He just wanted to be a simple priest and teach in a seminary, but he kept being given responsibilities which he accepted but never sought after.
Massimo Faggiola does a great job in synthesizing and capsulizing the fantastic life of this wonderful man who, by his prayer life and experience, changed forever the life of the Church. By simply opening windows, Pope John XXIII set off a tsunami of theological awakenings which gave hope to so many, that the Church was not simply a "museum of theological thought" but a vibrant force in the the world. He saw the world not as an adversary to be fought but a challenge to be met with and dialogued.
St. John XXIII, you are our real pontifical hero.
