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 humour. In this little booklet, readers are invited to walk with Pope John XXIII for thirty days, reflect on his teachings with related Scripture passages, prayers and practices to help follow in his footsteps. This is a wonderful spiritual guide for celebrating Good Pope John, one of our Church’s newest saints!
