by Holy Father, Pro-Life, Social Justice

As we celebrate and rejoice over the canonization of Pope Paul VI,  we would like to share a few videos as well as a section of an interview from Catholic News Agency with Cardinal Roger Etchegaray who knew St. Pope Paul VI very well.
“The name Paul was chosen after the Apostle Paul, the missionary apostle. I have a very precise memory of this Pope who seemed to be shy, to be discreet, and who had at the same time this missionary zeal. If I had to summarize Paul VI with two adjectives, I would say that he was a mystic and prophetic” Cardinal Etchegaray underscored.
“Human society is sorely ill. The cause is not so much the depletion of natural resources, nor their monopolistic control by a privileged few; it is rather the weakening of brotherly ties between individuals and nations.” – St. Pope Paul VI
