Paul VI 'underrated,

    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!)
