Topic: Pope John XXIII
...John maintained a diary from his teens, just after entering the seminary. It contained the spiritual reflections which were later published in the form of a journal titled as Journal of a Soul. Roncallis efforts, when he was a young man, are portrayed in the collection of writings, to the time that he "grows in holiness" and it extends to his papal election. St. Matthew (1964) is of the view that the opening caption of the films of Pier Paolo Pasolini, The Gospel, is devoted to the memory of John XXIII.
