An Anniversary

We remember Blessed John XXIII, who, on this day in 1962, threw open the windows of the church and convened the Second Vatican Council.

Almighty and eternal God,
who in the Pope, Blessed John XXIII,
gave to the whole world
the shining example of a good shepherd,
grant that, through his intercession,
we may with joy spread abroad the fullness of Christian charity.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

Blessed Pope John XXIII, pray for us!

Pope John XXIII
