Pope John Paul I

Born on October 17, 1912, Pope John Paul I had the shortest papacy in modern history, reigning over the See of Peter for only 33 days. In addition, he was the first pontiff to choose a double name, being a tribute to his two predecessors: John XXIII and Paul VI. He was also the last in the long line of Italian-born popes that began with Clement VII in 1523. (EPC)
