I see that the Church is a large family. Wherever the Pope goes the family meets with great joy. For me this is a sign of lively faith, of communion and of the peace that faith creates. (Welcome speech during the visit to the shrine of the Holy Face in Manopello, Pescara, Italy, September 1, 2006)
Born on Holy Saturday, 1927, and baptized later that evening at an Easter Vigil mass.
