Paul VI 'underrated,

Catholic World News - August 06, 2012

On August 6, Vatican Radio marked the 34th anniversary of the death of Pope Paul VI by interviewing veteran television journalist Bob Miller, who remembered him as a “misunderstood and underrated” Pontiff, guiding the Catholic Church through an extremely difficult period marked by the upheavals of the 1960s and the aftermath of Vatican II.

    The most underrated thing about his pontificate in my opinion is his little known and little appreciated but masterful "Credo Of The People of God". It's well worth reading and reflecting on and stands in the tradition of all the various Creeds that came before it.

    Perhaps one reason Paul VII is underrated is that he has not yet assumed the papacy. (No need to publish this comment!)
