Pope John XXIII - quotes

Pope John XXIII (1881-1963), born Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli, headed the Catholic Church and ruled Vatican City from 1958 until his death. Pope John was elected on 28 October 1958. He called the Second Vatican Council (1962–1965) but did not live to see it to completion. He died in 1963, only four-and-a-half years after his election, and two months after the completion of his final encyclical, Pacem in Terris. He was beatified, along with Pope Pius IX, on 3 September 2000.

English: "
Cyril and Methodius, are children of the East, citizens of Byzantium, Greeks by nationality..."

Latin: "Cyrillus ac Methodius — quos Orientis filios, patria Byzantinos, gente Graecos..."
