32nd Anniversary of the Death of Papa Luciani

Thirty-two years ago today, Papa Luciani died 33 days after assuming the papacy. I was in Wiesbaden, Germany that day, and one of the lay ministers of the Army base there called me with the news. I was stunned as was the whole world.

I would again encourage all of you to take the time to read about this remarkably humble and holy man who was the Servant of the Servants of God.

Dr. Lori Pieper has posted another wonderful article about Luciani’s thought and life at her blog On Pilgrimage.
