Angelo Roncalli was born of a poor peasant family in rural Italy in 1881. He became the pope in 1958 (at age 77), taking the name Pope John XXIII. He died in 1963. He was beatified, that is, officially declared “blessed,” eight years ago. So he is called Blessed John XXIII. June 3rd is his feast day, because he died on that date.
This week we honor his memory. He provided an example of holy wisdom described in today’s gospel. Jesus says: “Everyone who listens to my words and acts on them will be like the wise man who built his house on rock.” Full transcript here
