John Paul I (Pope)
Yesterday, a funny thing happened to me on my way to the Conclave.
John Paul I (Pope) quotes
We wish to continue in following up the legacy of the Second Vatican Council whose wise regulations have still to be led to their fulfilment, being careful that a push, generous perhaps, but unduly timed, does not detract from the content and meaning of the council, and on the other hand being careful and reined and timid efforts do not slow up the magnificent drive of renewal and of life.
John Paul I (Pope)
I will see you tomorrow, if God wills it.




John Paul I (Pope) quotes
For my part, he was God's candidate.
John Paul I (Pope)

John Paul I (Pope) quotes
I am at best on the C list for Pope.
John Paul I (Pope)
I come without five lire. I want to leave without five lire.
