Pope John's Opening Speech

Paraphrase and summary by Bill Huebsch -- original text also provided

full color -- E-Product: will be sent as an attachment to e-mail

This is the powerful and remarkable speech given by Pope John XXIII to open Vatican II. In the history of the entire church, few speeches have had a greater impact on our shared ecclesial life. Like St. Peter's speech after Pentecost, this carefully written speech is prophetic and bold! It lays the groundwork for the modern church.

Here we provide you with a beautifully paraphrased summary of the speech, presented in plain English and poetic sense lines. And we also provide the original speech just as John himself wrote it.
