Children's Comic Book: Explaining the story of the Second Vatican Council


The comic book goes back in history. Explaining the end of WWII, and the election of Cardinal Angelo Roncalli as Pope. He was in his late 70's at the time and few people imagined he would launch the Council and mark the history of the Church.

The comic book was launched by the Spanish diocese of Malaga. It includes the two years it took to prepare the council, before it opened on October 11, 1962. It then goes through the death of John XXIII,  the election of Paul VI and finally the closing of the Council in 1965. Then on the last page of the comic book, all the documents of the Council are ordered chronologically.

The goal is to educate the next generation about the Council so they have a full understanding of the Catholic faith, from the very start.
