BOSTON VATICAN CITY (AP)—The man who succeeds Pope John XXIII will conic to a papacy significantly changed during his reign. To many people, Catholics and non-Ditholics alike, the papacy may seem closer now. The tradition that Popes seldom leave the Vatican has been broken Hesitation to receive Protestant leaders has teen overcome. Pope John brought the church to grips with the 20th Century- On Nov. 4, 1958. the day he was crowned, no one dreamed of the changes that were ahead. Then 76, the pontiff with the heavy features was appraised by many as an interim Pope. There were predictions that the papacy would remain fairly static until the emergence of a strong, vigorous, younger Pope. Pope John at once shattered that concept, and he conttnuc-d to sweep away the pieces a- his reign progressed. He brought the Pope out of the Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church out of the counterreformation, carrying both dynamically into a difficult, modern world. The major works that marked Pope John as a great Pope were his Ecumenical Council and Ins major encyclicals "Mater at Mag- istra" and "Pacem in Ten-is." The qualities that endeared him as a person were his sweeping mental grasp of humanity as a single entity and his utter unpretentiousness. He once said that he hoped his "single and title title of hon./r" would always be: "He was a priest before God and before the people, a true and sincere fnend of all the nations." The humble farmer's son had a difficult time at first adjusting to the papal or imperial "We" when referring to himself in public address. He would explain to an aide that it was awkward to think of oneself in the plural, and he often reverted to "I." Quips "Don't interrupt me — I mean us/' the Pope once joked. The new Pope of 1958 wasted no time. One of his first acts was to announce in January, 1959. that hs would call an ecumenical—or general—council of all his bishops. There had been only 20 before in history, the last in 1869-70. Pope John explained that his council would be a council ol "aggior- namento"—bringing up to date- designed to help the cause of Christian unity and restore to his own church the pure lines of early centuries. He labored hard the next four- and-a-half years to bring the project into reality. He set up an elaborate preparatory program to sound out the bishops' ideas and diaw up topics. He held'consistories five times lor the creation of new cardinals, raising the number from 3i to record highs of 74, 78, 85 and then 87. He brought in cardinals from distant lands where Catholicism is almost nonexistent and let every rfce be represented. He created the first Negro cardinal, th? first Japanese. Audiences He received 250,000 annu-i'ly in h.;^e weekly general audiences j that ran twice the size of his predecessors' audiences. In private audiences he saw princes and kings, prime ministers and potentates, Protestants and atheists — inelud- in!- Soviet Premier Khrushchev's daughter Rada and son-in-law Altxei Adzhub«i, editor of Izves- tia. No other Pope had ever received such a personality from the Soviet Union. The people of the Eternal City, vhich has seen virtually ill tin Popes of Catholicism puss di/wi: through 20 centuries, took Pope John to their hearts as their beloved pastor, one of their own. Crowds pressed in tight when over he rode by their pidx/.iis. Tl.e> shouted their admiration until it rung from the Forum's rui/is. "Long live the Pope!" "Long live Papa Giovanni!" And they chanted the warmest ol Italian endearments, the diminutive: "Long live Pope Little John!" entitled to veteran preference, named for te coming year by the Active military service on or after president, Mrs. Earl Allen; flow- Arch.balrl D.
