Looking toward canonization of Bl. John XXIII

Catholic World News - October 04, 2012

Greg Tobin, author of a biography of Blessed John XXIII, recalls the life of the beloved Pontiff who convened Vatican II, and assesses the odds of his canonization.

Tobin reminds readers that when the remains of Pope John XXIII were moved to a new resting place in the Vatican basilica in 2001, at the time of his beatification, his body was found incorrupt.
