THE SIX POPES OF ST. MALACHY -  HALF-MOON: POPE JOHN PAUL I (LUCIANI)

Malachy describes Pope John Paul I as "Mediatate Lunae."

A half moon is when the moon begins to shine.  But, as in John Paul I's story, the other half never shone. . .an incomplete reign.  

He reigned for thirty three days.  Like the moon, all honored him, all noticed him, all admired him.  Then. . .all wept for him even if they hardly knew him.  By now, the papacy could not be taken for granted anymore.
