I was kind of suprised when I read this reader comment to this Yahoo! News article: news.yahoo.com/pope-elevates-6-cardinals-choose-successor-052355393.html
"John Paul II couldn't hold a candle to Pope John XXIII, who actually had an understanding of what Christianity is and should be. John XXIII reached out to all Christians everywhere and put aside the nonsense that only Roman Catholicism is the "one true church." The one true church is the Body of Christ, composed of all who believe in Him, irrespective of any earthly institution, or membership in any denomination. John XXIII knew that. He also realized that worshiping in a language that the the worshipers don't understand isn't worship at all. The people who sit in the pews need to be actively involved in worship -- they are not the audience watching performers up by the altar. In fact, God is the audience, the people in the pews are the performers, and the people up by the altar are the directors. I sorely miss John XXIII who is, in my heart, soul and mind, a saint."
I thought it was JP II that started the bringing together of all the faiths?
