Who was Pope when you were born?

Did your family even care?

I know that my own didn't...

Pope Johnny the Twenty-Third, in my case.

7. Same color - they are Lucky Cross (a variety I stabilized and named from a bee made cross)

It is an offspring of Brandywine X (Old German X Tigerella) - lots of good genes to work with. Think Pineapple color with Brandywine flavor!

Can you email me some?

I forgot to start my tomato plants this year, so it's the farmers market for me. I'm jealous. Nothing I live to eat more than fresh, homegrown tomatoes.

Too early to tell with Francis.

17. Pope John XII. I don't remember him but I remember the little fat pope John in 1963.

 

We were in Italy at the time and the whole country was in mourning. All the businesses were closed. I remember the day of the funeral everyone crying. We couldn't go do anything and not even watch tv. I'd never seen anything like it. But I remember how we all loved him. He was really a pope for the people.

22. BTW, John XXIII May not have been Pope when I was baptised.

 

He died nine days after I was born.

Ther may not have been a Pope on the day I was baptised. Not sure, will have to go back and check.

23. Got me. The mass was still in Latin though..

That meant Latin (Altar Boy) lessons every Saturday.

So five days of Catholic school + Latin lessons Saturday + church on Sunday = every freakin' day of the week at that @#$% place.

"Ad deum qui laetificat juventutum meum" Still got it!

Interesting question BTW.

I always thought it was John XXIII, so I learned something new today. When I think of Pius I don't think of the 1950s. However, Pius was pope from 1939-1958.

My family isn't Catholic. But I certainly remember Vatican II!

Pope John 23rd let RCers go into Prottie churches and other ecumenical things. Also, the mass became celebrated in the local language.

I was just a little kid, but I remember my babysitter left me a note letting me know how he was doing after she watched the late news. I must have felt bad about it.

My parents once went to a mass celebrated by Pope Paul. My family claimed not to care, but they obviously did.

the one I remember was John XXIII. I wasn't Catholic, so it took a few years of living in a mostly Catholic city to realize that the Pope was important to a lot of people.
