Remembering Blessed John XXIII

Pope Benedict XVI prays in front of the tomb of Blessed Pope John XXIII in St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican, Oct. 28, the 50th anniversary of the late pope’s election to the papacy. He said his predecessor always worked to increase agreement, hope, unity and peace. He also told some 3,000 pilgrims from the Diocese of Bergamo, the home diocese of Blessed Pope John, who had traveled to the Vatican to mark the anniversary, that John XXIII offered a “truly special gift to the Church” in the Second Vatican Council, which he called, prepared and opened in 1962. “We are all committed to accepting that gift in an appropriate way, continuing to meditate on its teachings and translate them” into the daily life of the Church, he said.
