Pope John XXIII was one of the most influential popes in the past years of the Catholic Church. Thought to be a transitional pope, he stunned the world by calling the second Vatican council which changed the course of the Catholic Church. This statue presents Saint Pope John XXIII in his red robes and with his hand raised in blessing. Saint Pope John XXIII was known as "il buono papa" or the Good Pope. He was a humble and gentle man with the inner strength needed to pull the Catholic Church into a more modern era. Because of the 2nd Vatican Council Catholics today enjoy Mass in their own language, encouragement to read and interpret the Bible and more lay participation in the Mass and activities of the Church among other changes. Yet his humbleness, gentleness and deep clear faith in God made him had people seeing him as a "good shepherd" pope. He was canonized in 2014. The Saint Pope John XXIII statue is made of a durable resin and stone mixture, stands 6-1/4 inches tall and comes boxed.
