Pope John XXIII is to be canonized in the spring of 2014. This special rosary is being offered as a remembrance of this special man and this important occasion. The rosary has garnet or deep ruby colored beads and the joiner features an image of Pope John XXIII reflecting his faith and humbleness. This image is also presented on an available holy card with medal, item 43091. Perhaps best known for calling into session the 2nd Vatican Council, John XXIII is also remembered for his humbleness, gentleness and deep faith in God. Because of who he was and his endearing personality, he is often called "Il buono papa" or The Good Pope. Each time you use these beads to say the rosary, you will be reminded of the wonderful qualities of this special pope and be encouraged to practice them in your own life. Thought to be a transitional pope when elected, Pope John XXIII surprised everyone by calling the 2nd Vatican Council which brought many of the changes found in the Catholic Church today including Mass in English, encouragement in reading the Bible, and more participation by lay people. Saying the rosary will have additional meaning when said on this special rosary commemorating the canonization of John XXIII.
