A Reflection on Pope Paul VI – To Be Canonized Tomorrow

Seven facts you may not know about Paul VI

Pope Paul VI is the only man in my lifetime whom i wanted to be elected Pope .

He was a courageous and prophetic Pope .

Little did I expect that I would live to see one of my heroes be canonized .

I rejoice .

The funeral of Pope Paul VI was on a Saturday afternoon and was broadcast by the BBC .

I recall going out to the pub that evening and hearing people who didn’t normally do “religious talk” talking about the funeral .

They were impressed by the silence of so many thousands .
