Fifty years ago, one man led the charge to evaluate the Catholic Church’s role in the world – but he wasn’t a revolutionary bent on dissent and schism. He was the Pope. Known by many as the “Good Pope,” John XXIII – and the Vatican Council he convened in 1962 – dramatically changed the Church. Now, a new book provides a sweeping historical overview of Vatican II, of the Pope who convened it, and its impact over the past half century. Its author, Greg Tobin, joins us this week to talk about Vatican II and his book, The Good Pope: The Making of a Saint and the Remaking of the Church.
