Blessed John XXIII

Today is the 43rd anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council. Although widely discussed throughout the Church, especially in the United States, very few of us have actually read all of the Council documents. Today also is the liturgical celebration of Blessed Pope John XXIII, who opened the Council and was beatified by Pope John Paul II on September 3, 2000.

Catholic Culture explains more about today's feasts here.
