Pope of the World
I just received my copy of TIME Magazine [June 7], and I couldn't believe my eyes. Is it just a quirk of fate or coincidence that Vol. 81 No. 23 has on its cover Pope John the 23rd, who died at the age of 81?

Pope John had become the Pope of the world, not just Christ's Vicar on Earth to us Catholics. This wonderful man in his short reign became a loved figure; his death has cast a gloom over mankind.
