Catholics of the third millennium owe much to John XXIII. He and the council that he convoked gave us a new direction. During and after his pontificate, the Church's relationship with the world, with Christians and with non-Christians changed dramatically, as did our understanding of liturgy and the importance of Scripture--the "cup and the book," which Bishop Roncalli like to emphasize in his sermons of earlier years.
