The Real Pope and Saint
By Fr Mitch Pacwa, SJ and Dr James Hitchcock
36 Minutes

This documentary film is a presentation by Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J., and Professor James Hitchcock, Ph.D. about the life, times and papacy of Pope John XXIII, who will be canonized a saint by Pope Francis on April 27, 2014. A lively and in-depth overview of the life and work of the beloved Pope who opened the Second Vatican Council.

Originally produced to be a Bonus Extra film on DVD for the feature film John XXIII (starring Ed Asner) - See side bar to purchase this DVD -, this presentation by these two acclaimed teachers and historians will enlighten and inspire all viewers with new insights and appreciation for John XXIII, the man, the Pope and the saint.

They discuss many aspects of the Pope's life and papacy, and clarify some of the misconceptions people have about him being simply a "peasant Pope", and an easy going, jolly person. They show that he did come from peasant stock, but was very well educated and brilliant man, who taught and lived by high moral standards, had a deep charity toward others, and more than just a "good man", why he was truly a saint.
