Just in time for his canonization comes this lovely statue of Pope John XXIII. This popular pope was often called "Il buono papa" or the Good Pope. The statue is made of a sturdy and durable resin and stone mix and stands 4 inches high so not only will last for awhile but the size enables you to display it just about anywhere that you wish to set it. He wears the traditional red robes of a cardinal or pope. Thought to be a transitional pope, Pope John XXIII surprised everyone and changed the course of the Catholic Church when he convened the 2nd Vatican Council. Out of this came many of the things we enjoy today like Mass in English, encouragement in reading and interpreting the Bible and more participation of lay people in areas previously open to just the clergy. Exhibiting humbleness, gentleness and a strong faith in God Pope John XXIII gives us an example of the "shepherd" pope and is greatly looked up to for these endearing qualities. Display this statue as a remembrance of the canonization of this wonderful man, his compassionate and encouraging qualities and all the things he made possible in the Church. The Pope John XXIII statue comes boxed.
