The Italian Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli (1881-1963), also known as Pope John XXIII, was a High Pontiff between 1958 and 1963. The Pope spoke with a being descended on a spaceship.
The Pope was also called “Il Papa Buono” in Portuguese (“The Good Pope”), besides being one of the most charismatic and beloved popes in history, had the gift of prophecy, making in his youth several predictions about political changes. coming and coming in the years to come, such as the coming of World War II, the end of the British empire, the assassination of the Kennedy brothers and Mahatma Gandhi and the fall of the Berlin wall, also other facts of the Second Coming Jesus Christ and the end of the world (which, according to Pope John XXIII, was to occur in the year 2033, with the consequent restoration of the “Kingdom of God on earth”).
Pope John XXIII, actor of “Mater et magistra” and “Pacem in Teris”, was a great thinker and visionary, who tried to change some of the power structures that controlled the political and economic aspect in the church.
And one of the most striking events in his life had to do with a supposed encounter that Pope John XXIII had with a man who had come from heaven in a kind of flying ship, causing it to change the Pope’s way of thinking. respect of the universe and man.
This event took place at the papal summer house of Castel Gandolfo in 1961, and was revealed by Loris Capovilla, the personal secretary and papal assistant of John XXIII, 20 years after his death, at an English seminary.
The report made by Pope John XXIII’s assistant, who years later would be named Cardinal in 2014 by Pope Francis), was as follows:
“The Pope and I were walking through the garden one evening in July 1961, when we observed over our head a very bright nava. It was oval in shape and several blue in color.
The ship seemed to fly over our heads for a few minutes, then landed on the ground on the south side of the garden. A strange “being” came out of the ship: it was human in shape, the difference being that its body was surrounded by golden light and had longer ears than ours.
The Pope and I kneel. We did not know what we were seeing, but we knew that this “being” was not of this world; it must therefore be a heavenly event.
We prayed and when we raised our heads, the being was still there. This proved to us that it was not a vision what we were seeing. The Pope stands up and walks closer to the being. The two stood side by side for 20 minutes; I could see them gesturing like they were talking, but I couldn’t hear the sounds of the voices.
They didn’t call, so I stayed where I was and couldn’t hear anything they were talking about.
Soon the being turned and walked to his ship and then climbed. The Pope turned to me and said, “The children of God are everywhere; though we sometimes have difficulty recognizing our own brethren.”
After the extraterrestrial being returned to his ship and boarded, the Pope and I continued our tour as if nothing had happened.
According to his personal secretary, John XXIII never wanted to tell what he had said to the strange visitor who came down from heaven since the event of a European summer day of 1961.
This, of course, was not the only mention that people related to the Catholic Church have facts regarding the possibility of the existence of intelligent life beyond our planet.
In 2008, Vatican Observatory director Jose Gabriel Funes said in an interview with the Italian newspaper L’Observatorie Romano that “God may have created intelligent life in other parts of the universe and could even be our brothers,” a statement that in a matter of minutes went around the world.
