Pope John XXIII: The Saint Who Launched Vatican II and Inspired the Modern World0 0 5 Author: Gerard Mannion Narrator: Gerard Mannion
In this course, you will join the late ecclesial expert and Georgetown professor Gerard Mannion to experience the enduring charisma of Saint John XXIII. In 12 fascinating lectures, you will journey through his inspiring life, his powerful leadership in calling the Second Vatican Council, and his lasting legacy for the world today.
John XXIII (r. 1958–1963) enchanted the world with his charismatic papacy that stressed peace and justice. A true shepherd for the people, he united cultures across the globe and championed interreligious dialogue. Facing a world torn apart by war and conflict, he united people around the globe with his message of love and warm teaching style.
All of this would have marked him as a great pope, but his greatest achievement was the calling of the Second Vatican Council (1962–65), which he called to bring the church “up to date” (aggiornamento). In introducing this reform, John XXIII changed the Church forever.
Discover anew the power of this inspiring saint’s teachings today.
