Superb presentation

Pope John XXIII had a big impact on my life. I was born into the post World War II Catholic Church and my elementary school life was in the pre Vatican II type Catholicism, with its emphasis on rules and law rather than the spirit of love and freedom in Jesus.

Then when I was in high school, a Catholic one, Pope John XXIII brought about Vatican II and the our Sisters of Loretto were so enthused about it and helped us to appreciate what changes were coming into the Church ... it was a wonderful exciting time.

Seeing this show brought back that enthusiasm ..the remembrance of what was important in my faith... I loved this show. And I had it on tape and would show Catholics younger than myself what a wonderful Pope John XXIII had been... this pope is now Blessed John XXIII and Charles Durning's performance show why we will someday call him Saint John XXIII .. Durning brings out John's humor and love of Christ in a warm and authentic manner.
