Lord of all truth and peace, who didst raise up thy bishop John to be servant of the servants of God and bestowed on him wisdom to call for the work of renewing your Church: Grant that, following his example, we may reach out to other Christians to clasp them with the love of your Son, and labor throughout the nations of the world to kindle a desire for justice and peace; through Jesus Christ, who is alive and reignest with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
On this day in 1963 St John XXIII died. His testament reads: “At this moment of goodbye, or rather, arrivederci (until we meet again), I remind everyone of what counts most in life: Jesus Christ, His Holy Church, His Gospel; and in the Gospel, above all, the Pater Noster” pic.twitter.com/Okduq0w5TX
