Live From Rome: What You Need to Know About Popes John XXIII and John Paul II
Description: The canonizations of Popes St. John XXIII and St. John Paul II mark not only the raising to the altars of arguably the two most beloved pontiffs of the 20th century but the opportunity to reflect on the remarkable writings of these two holy popes. Both served during periods of great political, social and intellectual upheaval, and both called on the human family to embrace peace amidst the threat of nuclear annihilation. Above all, the two new saints were united by their abiding concern for the dignity of the human person in the modern world. Matthew Bunson and his encyclopedic knowledge of all things Catholic are in Rome for the canonizations and he joins us to go over the legacies of these two great Popes.
