This book was published in 1957 so is a treasure for me. Though it is a little dated very informative on life and times of Pope Pius XII and what was happening in those times before Vatican II changes and masses still in Latin. Wonderful explanation of US relationship of President and Kennedy Patriarch and "unofficial" US diplomacy. Excellent insight during the period during WWII. Highly recommend this book.
Pope Francis I will be canonizing Pope JJP2 and Pope John XXIII in April, 2014. Don't be surprised if Pope Pius XII will follow shortly because it is past his due.
