The Legion of Christ and Pope John Paul I

Juan Pablo I
Ioannes Paulus PP. I

On August 26, 1978 countless priests in the Church celebrated the Mass of the Holy Spirit, praying that God would grant the Church a saintly Pope. That day, Pope Albino Luciani was elected and the Legionaries in Rome went to St. Peter’s Square to receive the urbi et orbi blessing.

The Pontificate of the Pope Luciani lasted only a month, from August 26 to September 28, 1978. However it was a fertile pontificate that gave a shining witness to the existence of God.
