I think he was a good man. It is obvious that his papacy ended up a failure and he made many mistakes that have ultimately harmed the church grievously. But we must consider how he was pressured and influenced at every turn by those in high places who wanted to destroy the church and corrupt her doctrine and liturgy. Perhaps he lacked the necessary strength of a good pope to resist this diabolical pressure? We may never know. Blessed Paul VI, Pray for us! Let us ask for his prayers for the renewal of the church and the restoration of so many things that he mistakenly did away with. He know knows his mistakes and desires to help us from heaven!
