Simplicity and humility. These two characteristics led to Angelo Roncalliís election as pope, as well as to his beatification in 2000. The author has managed to come incredibly close to the personality that Pope John XXIII was: several witnesses, including Johnís private secretary, Loris Francesco Capovilla, share their story and allow Riebs to portray the Good Pope as the extraordinary and truly inspiring man that he was.
