On 6 August 1978 it was a Sunday. At Castel Gandolfo, in the summer residence of the Popes, the clock was 21.40. Giovanni Battista Montini, Paul VI, the 262th successor of Peter, died as he had wished: far from the spotlight and from the vigils of the people.
"He had prayed to God to allow him a farewell alone" noted long ago Avvenire, the Italian Catholic newspaper: "He was heard".
