The crowd at St. Peter’s Square waited with great anticipation for the new Pope to appear at the Vatican window. Who was this Karol Wojtyla? Pope John Paul II was from Poland, but he still welcomed the crowd in Italian. In every country he visited, people flocked in great numbers to see him and to get to know him. He blessed children, met young people and wished to feel the suffering of sick people.
The Pope preached unity, peace and forgiveness.
His love remains with us throughout the years…
