Lives of the Saints: Blessed Pope John XXIII
On October 11, join the Church in celebrating the Feast Day of Blessed Pope John XXIII. During his life, there was much change and war in the world—World Wars I and II, the Cold War, and the Cuba Missile Crisis. But Pope John taught us that we’re never too old for right action, and that it is never too late for peace.
