Canonizations are no reason for nostalgia, says secretary to Pope John XXIII
Catholic World News - April 22, 2014
The cardinal who once served as private secretary to Pope John XXIII told Vatican Radio that the canonization of his former boss is not a reason for nostalgia.
Cardinal Loris Capovilla explained that Pope John XXIII himself insisted that the leaders of the Church are not custodians of a museum, but cultivators of an active garden, who should constantly be sowing new seeds.
