Heavenly school...

"My life seems destined to be spent in the light irradiating from
the Blessed Sacrament, and it is the heart of Jesus that
I must look to for the solution of all my troubles." - St John XXIII

"In the Blessed Sacrament
a heavenly school is open to you,
with the best teacher
one can possibly imagine,
Jesus Christ Himself."

Pope St John XXIII
Italy ~ 1881-1963
Pope ~  1958-1963
Always close to the suffering and the poor
Dubbed by media as "the good Pope"
Feast Day - Oct 11*
*Opening day of Vatican II (1962)

Perhaps the testimony of the world at the death of Pope John XXIII 
was best expressed by a newspaper drawing of the earth
shrouded in mourning with the simply caption, "A Death in the Family."

St John XXIII, pray for us!
