Služobník Boží Ján Pavol I. , vl. menom Albino Luciani, bol taliansky duchovný a 263. pápež katolíckej cirkvi . Zomrel 28. septembra toho istého roku. Jeho tridsaťtridňový pontifikát bol desiatym najkratším v cirkevných dejinách. Keďže zomrel skôr ako sa mohol podstatne zapísať svojou pápežskou činnosťou, spomína sa naňho pre jeho priateľskosť a pokoru, pre ktoré je porovnávaný s „Dobrým pápežom Jánom“ – všeobecne populárnym pápežom Jánom XXIII.
Citáty Ján Pavol I.
„Boh nechce, aby sme boli jednoducho iba dobrí; chce, aby sme boli celkom a celkom svätí. Ale chce, aby sme tú svätosť dosiahli nie robením mimoriadnych vecí, ale skôr obyčajnou, riadnou činnosťou. Mimoriadny musí byť iba spôsob, akým to robíme. Môžeme byť svätí aj na ulici, v úrade, v dielni; ide o to, aby sme si svedomito plnili povinnosti z lásky k Bohu a radostne, aby sa každodenná práca stala nie "dennou tragédiou", ale skôr „denným úsmevom“.“
„Put on the cross, not only did he forgive those who crucified him, but he excused them. He said: "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do." This is Christianity, these are sentiments which, if put into practice would help society so much.“
— Pope John Paul I
Context: People sometimes say: "we are in a society that is all rotten, all dishonest." That is not true. There are still so many good people, so many honest people. Rather, what can be done to improve society? I would say: let each of us try to be good and to infect others with a goodness imbued with the meekness and love taught by Christ. Christ's golden rule was: "do not do to others what you do not want done to yourself. Do to others what you want done to yourself." 'And he always gave. Put on the cross, not only did he forgive those who crucified him, but he excused them. He said: "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do." This is Christianity, these are sentiments which, if put into practice would help society so much.

„Those who travel in the stratosphere are in danger of not being prudent, when they are full of knowledge acquired purely from books.“
— Pope John Paul I
Context: Let me give an example. It is far away in time but a classic case … In 1815, the official French newspaper Le Moniteur, showed its readers how to follow Napoleon's progress: 'The brigand flees from the island of Elba '; 'The usurper arrives at Grenoble'; ' Napoleon enters Lyons'; 'The Emperor reaches Paris this evening'. What an amazing turnabout! This must not be compared with prudence, just as it isn't prudent to have a stubborn attitude and to take no account of what is obviously real or to become excessively rigid and zealously upright, more loyalist than the king, more papist than the pope. This happens. Some people seize on an idea, then bury it and guard it for the rest of their lives, defending it jealously without ever examining it again, without ever trying to check what has become of it after all the rain and wind and storms of events and changes. Those who travel in the stratosphere are in danger of not being prudent, when they are full of knowledge acquired purely from books. They can never get away from what is written, are always busy analyzing, pointing out subtleties, perpetually splitting hairs. Life is quite another matter. "Letter to St Bernard" in Illustrissimi (1976), p. 53
„We are the objects of undying love on the part of God. We know: he has always his eyes open on us, even when it seems to be dark. He is our father; even more he is our mother.“
— Pope John Paul I
Context: We are the objects of undying love on the part of God. We know: he has always his eyes open on us, even when it seems to be dark. He is our father; even more he is our mother. He does not want to hurt us, He wants only to do good to us, to all of us. If children are ill, they have additional claim to be loved by their mother. And we too, if by chance we are sick with badness, on the wrong track, have yet another claim to be loved by the Lord. Angelus (10 September 1978) http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/john_paul_i/angelus/documents/hf_jp-i_ang_10091978_en.html; in an audience with Philippine bishops on 28 September 1978, he further elaborated: According to tales told by ancient men to attain their political objectives "God is the Father." According to what we really know "God is the Mother."
