  • John XXIII and John Paul II: two holy Popes, two Marian saints - Opus Dei
    John XXIII and John Paul II will be canonized this Sunday and the beatification process for the third recent Pope Paul VI is now well advanced John XXIII is above all the Pope who convoked the Second Vatican Council As Peter s successor he guided the Church with a firm and fatherly hand towards this extraordinary experience of faith and personal and collective renewal As Guadium et Spes emphasized the Council strove to speak to the hearts of men and women in today s world Pope Roncalli helped place the vocation to holiness at the very core of Christian life We can go to his intercession today to beseech God that all men and women may take deeply to heart this truth proclaimed by Vatican II that sanctity is attainable by all Christians and is not a goal for a few select people For mankind as a whole John XXIII is also the Pope of peace since during a very tense historical moment he had no hesitation following the example of his predecessors to do everything possible to prevent war using all of his moral and religious authority to make clear the prerequisites for peace and for the safeguarding of the dignity of the human person John Paul II was a priest in love with God and mankind created in the image of God in Christ Spurred by charity he convoked the whole Church to the new evangelization while stressing at the same time the role that corresponds to the laity in this task of making God present in the life of people and nations During the years of his pontificate we have been given new light to grasp more deeply God s goodness and mercy His words his gestures his writings his personal self giving both in health and in sickness have been instruments used by the Holy Spirit to draw many people to the sources of grace and to encourage thousands of young people to say yes to Christ s call to the priesthood to religious life to matrimony and to lay apostolic celibacy The Polish Pope led us from the second into the third millennium leaving behind him a rich legacy on the dignity of the human person the value of human life and the family service to the poor and needy the rights of workers human love and the dignity of women and about so many other aspects crucial for fostering a life of human dignity His writings and words provide us with a body of teachings with enormous potential for the future I personally am convinced that his social and human message stemming from his deep spiritual response to God will become more and more important with the passage of the years The canonization of these two great shepherds takes place a few days before we begin May the month of Mary This is a feature that unites the two new saints their deep and tender love for our Lady John XXIII frequently pointed to
