"Hi, I was the Taxi Driver of Pope John!"

You never know who you will meet in Catholic Italy.

So many eyewitnesses to history.

Meet Bruno, our taxi driver in Assisi yesterday. On his first day on the job on May 3, 1958, he had the honor to drive Cardinal Roncalli, who was later that year elected pope.

What did the future John XXIII say? He joked that Bruno was a bad driver and in need of his blessing!
