Pope John XXIII, also called "Good Pope John", will be canonized on April 27, 2014. This beautiful holy card has been created in celebration of his canonization. The prayer card is made of sturdy paper and features an image of Pope John XXIII on one side and a short biography and prayer on the other. The prayer concerns the hopes Pope John XXIII had for the 2nd Vatican Council which he called for just 90 days after his election which he hoped would move the Catholic Church forward into a more modern environment. Changes to the language of the liturgy were one of the most important results of the council. Pope John XXIII was passionate about human rights as found in one of his most famous and important encyclicals entitled Pacem in Terra and about equality where he is quoted as saying "We were all made in God's image so we are all Godly alike". The first day of the first session of the 2nd Vatican Council, October 11, has been chosen as his feast day rather than the traditional date of his death. The Pope John XXIII commemorative holy card also comes laminated, item 4025PL.
