St. John XXIII

Growing up in Italy, Angelo began keeping a prayer journal when he was a teenager. He became a priest and later worked for the Vatican as the pope’s ambassador to other countries. He was given very difficult assignments during World War II. The cardinals elected him Pope in 1958. He kept his prayer journal his whole life. He balanced his many responsibilities with time for rest and prayer. He even had time to take a walk every day. He never let himself worry too much either. When he said his night prayers, he would tell God, “Well, I did my best. It’s Your Church, so I’m going to bed now.”
