His boldness in opening the windows of the Church to an air of change and his outspoken quest for peace will continue to renew the Church in ways that no one is likely to foresee.Compiled from his books, encyclicals, retreat notes, personal letters, anecdotal accounts, newspaper reports, speeches, audiences, and radio addresses, Pope John XXIII: In My Own Words shows the true humanity of the pastor and shepherd of the universal Church whose warmth, sincerity, accomplishments, personality, and holiness will long be remembered.
