Saint John XXIII on the Catholic Church

Pope Saint John XXIII
Christ's Church is, above all, the spiritual temple where every Christian knows he has his place: he knows he has it, and he is aware of his duty to keep it with honor, dignity, and grace.
— St. John XXIII


Prayer for St. John XXIII’s Intercession

Almighty and eternal God, who in your Pope, Saint John XXIII, gave to the whole world the shining example of a good shepherd, grant that, by his intercession, we may with joy spread abroad the fullness of Christian charity in our words, deeds and remembered virtue. 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. Amen.
