Recognizing that Blessed John XXIII and John Paul II have widespread
reputations for holiness and that years of studying their lives and actions have proven
their exceptional virtue, Pope Francis announced he would declare his two predecessors
saints at a single ceremony April 27.
Below is the first part of a 1973, 55-minute, made-for-TV movie entitled Portrait: A Man Whose Name Was John. It stars Raympond Burr
as Archbishop Roncalli (future Pope John XXIII) when he was Vatican ambassador to Turkey during World War II.
The film tells the true story of how Archbishop Roncalli saved a many Jewish children from being murdered by the Nazis.
Fr. Ezaki comments, "I remember watching this movie as a kid in high school and being very much impressed. With the approaching canonization of Pope John XXIII,
I think many people might want to watch the movie."
The remaining parts of the movie are available at YouTube. Just click on the YouTube logo and you'll see the remaining portions of the film are available.
