The Good Pope
2013 marks 50 years since the death of Pope John XXIII, who summoned the Second Vatican Council. Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli was born in Sotto il Monte, a small village in the province of Bergamo, northern Italy, in 1881. On June 3, 1963, he died of stomach cancer. This is a nice little video from Rome Reports telling us a bit about this man who was known as 'the good pope'.
