It is no exaggeration to say that Pope John XXIII was the most popular and beloved pope who ever lived. At his death in 1963 the entire world mourned the passing of a great and good man who had captured the hearts of believers and non-believers on all continents. From old friends, curial members, contemporary journalists and his foreign correspondent colleagues Louis Michaels has selected those stories which best illustrate the dynamic character of the revered pontiff. His ebullient personality, mischievous good humor and radiant spirituality, came perhaps as close as is humanly possible to unite admiring millions of all nations within the warmth and embrace of a single personality. "This book is a delight. The pen and ink illustrations are charming." (Liturgical Arts Magazine) "Michaels tells his stories in simple, clear, concise prose which brings out the personality of Pope John. A good book to peek into for a quick uplift." (New World) 128 pages
