The Pope Is Dead

Neusner, Jacob
September 1978
National Review;9/1/1978, Vol. 30 Issue 35, p1080
The article presents information on the career of Pope Paul VI, who died in August 1978. Paul stood firm on the wrong issues, at the wrong time, and for the wrong audience. Paul was conservative in doctrine, liberal in deed. Some friends of the Church might have preferred to reverse matters. But he always knew who he was and what he represented. To him was committed the heritage of faith and hope, of a vision of the holy life here and the life of salvation in life after death. Throughout his last years, Paul maintained his personal balance.
