Pope John XXIII sending St. Pius X body back to Venice -- Anura Guruge, John XXIII 101 Facts & Trivia Book.

I talked about this on Page 132, ‘bullet’ #88, of my
“Pope John XXIII: 101 Facts & Trivia”

It was a very touching and historic occasion.
The first time a passenger train had departed the ornate Vatican Railway station.

I conjecture that Pope Francis might
reenact this gesture by sending

St. Pope John XXIII’s body to Venice
in the next couple of years.

Stay tuned.
