Pope Saint John XXIII (25 November 1881 – 3 June 1963) reigned as Pope from 28 October 1958 to his death in 1963 and was canonized on 27 April 2014. He was the first pope to take the pontifical name of "John" upon election in more than 500 years, and his choice settled the complicated question of official numbering attached to this papal name due to the antipope of this name.

See everything overlook a great deal correct a little.
Every man has the right to life to bodily integrity.
I have looked into your eyes with my eyes. I have put my heart near your heart.

Born poor but of honored and humble people I am particularly proud to die poor.
I am able to follow my own death step by step. Now I move softly towards the end.
