Israeli parliament to pay tribute to St. John XXIII
Catholic World News - May 09, 2014
On May 13, Israel’s national legislature will pay tribute to Pope St. John XXIII, who governed the Church from 1958 to 1963.
Following a keynote address, several members of the Knesset “will pronounce short speeches to evoke the figure and deeds of Pope John XXIII,” according to the International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation. They will do so “in recognition of his humanitarian activities during the Holocaust and of his contribution to the promotion of the interreligious dialogue.”
