Blessed Pope John Paul II, Pray for Us.

Blessed Pope John Paul II

Feastday:  October 22

Patron of World Youth Day (Co- Patron)
1920 – 2005

Everyone knows John Paul II: his face, his characteristic way of moving and speaking; his immersion in prayer and his spontaneous cheerfulness. Many of his words have become indelibly engraved in our memories, starting with the passionate cry with which he introduced himself to the people at the beginning of his pontificate: ‘Open wide the doors to Christ, and be not afraid of him!’ Or this saying: ‘No one can live a trial life; no one can love experimentally.’ An entire pontificate is condensed in words like these. It is as though he would like to open the doors for Christ everywhere and wishes to open up to people the gate that leads to true life, to true love.

– Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI


IN Honor of Blessed Pope John Paul II, here is a map of the Catholic Church I made for another site of mine called the Society of Sts. Peter and Andrew. The Map was inspired by the soon-to-be saint’s quote “The Church must breathe with her two lungs!” -Blessed Pope John Paul II ; Ut Unim Sunt, 54.
