Remembering Paul VI


It was thirty-five years ago today when Pope Paul VI went to his heavenly reward. Papa Montini is now sandwiched between two popes who are portrayed as larger than life and who will be canonized together later this year, Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II. (Let us not forget Pope John Paul I who brief shining pontificate reminded us, as we are being reminded again, of how a pope can govern with humility.) I do not know if Paul VI was a saint but I do think he will go down as one of the great pope's of his time.
