Pope St. John Paul II

In just a few hours, Pope Francis will canonize both Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II. The latter man played a part in my conversion to Catholicism, and I am forever grateful for his life and ministry. And so, here are just a few of the many, many quotes and pics I could share from the Polish Pontiff:

    Beautiful quotes from such an inspirational man. Two popes canonizing two popes-what an exciting day for Catholics! Happy Divine Mercy Sunday!

    I didn’t convert until a few years into Benedict XVI’s papacy, but I admired Pope John Paul II (almost the first one I ever heard of) even in my pre-Christian days.
    It is a privilege to have known so much about someone during his/her life and then live to see him/her canonized.
    Some have apparently objected to the canonizations on the grounds that these men were fallible human beings. Well, saints are fallible human beings. But they do their best and they love God. This is a time of great joy.
