The John XXIII museum, located in the late pope’s house of birth in Sotto il Monte, Italy, will in future be closed during most of the week, only three years after John XXIII’s canonization. The congregation of sisters which took care of the place, abandoned it for a lack of vocations after 57 years. Now the house will be open only on Saturday, Sundays and after appointments. The parish is new in charge of the location and it struggles to find people who would help to take care of the visitors and the building.
