We are publishing this most recent installment of The Deacon and the Doc on the sixtieth anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council. Our subject is the brief pontificate of Pope John Paul I, who was beatified on September 4, 2022. Known as the "Smiling Pope," Albino Luciani made cementing and extending the correct implementation of the council a cornerstone of his pontificate. We delve into what his hopes were on that front as well as provide some fascinating insight on the approved miracle that triggered his beatification.
