No pope has spoken so often, so well and on so many subjects as Pius XII. He had an amazing gift for adapting himself to every kind of audience – Children or statesman, factory workers, young couples, bankers, army generals, railway workers, doctors, etc., and to speak to them of their own problem with sympathetic insight and presenting them a catholic solution. Countless people of every class went to see him and hear his counsels. In his address on Nov 6, 1955 he mentions about “the ever-growing numbers of those who want to not merely to see the Vicar of Christ but to hear his counsels on the most varied topics”. “There is a holy desire,” he added, “to seek in the doctrine of Christ the principles for solving the problems which are keeping individuals and nations in suspense”.
