Pope Francis honors the life and legacy of John XXIII

POPE FRANCIS“Angelo Roncalli was able to convey peace: It was a natural, serene and cordial kind of peace. As Pope, he transmitted that peace to the world, adding to this reputation of kindness. It?s so nice to encounter such a good priest. A priest with graciousness.”The Pope explained that in order to achieve peace, it is necessary to put selfishness aside and instead to make room for God. The Bishop of Bergamo provoked some nervous laughs, when he told Pope Francis that after his election, many thought his gestures resembled those of Pope John XXIII. RCG/KLH CTV-JM-BNu:SCar
