Plazo de entrega
El reconocido protagonismo del papa Roncalli en la Iglesia de la segunda mitad del siglo XX, con el inesperado e innovador proceso de revitalización eclesial que puso en marcha, hace necesario un acercamiento a su figura, indiscutiblemente carismática, desde una perspectiva eclesiológica que respalde y fundamente las decisiones y actitudes del papa Juan y nos ayude a comprender la realidad del aggiornamento asumido por el Concilio Vaticano II. Verdadero papa de transición, con su disponibilidad al Espíritu supo buscar los cauces para la llegada de una nueva primavera, expresión de la eterna juventud de la Iglesia.
JOHN XXIII. AN ECCLESIASTIC PORTRAIT
The recognized importance of the Roncalli pope in the Church of the second half of the twentieth century, with the unexpected and innovative process of ecclesiastic reform that he put in motion, makes it quite desirable to take a careful look at this indisputably charismatic figure from an ecclesiastic perspective, in order to understand his decisions and attitudes, and the reality of the aggiornamento of the second Vatican Council. He was truly the Pope of transition, embracing the arrival of a new spring, a rejuvenation, for the Catholic Church.
Pope John was the believer who opens himself up to Revelation, both permanent and actual; faithful to the immutable truth of faith and twenty centuries of Christianity, but also able to understand the ways of the modern world and interpret the signs of the times. Father and shepherd, John XXIII articulated his thinking in harmonic unity with his life. In effect, his origins, his life, his relationships and his experiences shaped his vision of the Church and allowed him to discover the words that would deepen his almost evangelical concept of the Church.
