Il Papa Buono - The Good Pope

Pope John XXIII
(1881 -1963)

Tomb of John XXIII which I took at St. Peter's, 1998

Tomb of John XXIII at the altar of St. Jerome,
St. Peter's, 2008
(Moved from lower crypt to make room for John Paul II)

There was a man
sent from God
whose name was John,
he was fat
and kind.
We found that very intriguing,
not so much the being fat
but the being kind.

(Brother Denis Wiseman, O.P.)

Thank you blessed Saint for healing, cleansing, deliverance, interceding for my son's (Erich H.) family tree (parents, grandparents, greatgrandparents), nieces/nephews/godchild's genograms. Karin S.
