John Paul II, 25th Anniversary of Pontificate

A detailed calculation of the long, nearly bimillennial history of the papacy shows that recently John Paul II moved up into fourth place in the table of the longest pontificates. According to Proto-Christian tradition, St. Peter, whom Jesus invested with pastoral authority over the Church, held the office for about 33 years. Pius IX (1846-1878) is second with a pontificate, which lasted 31 years and 7 months; and Leo XIII (1878-1903) third (in office for 25 years and 7 months). As he comes up to his Silver Jubilee, John Paul II has overtaken Number Five in the table, Pius VI (1775-1799), with a mere twenty-four and a half years.
