Relive the Moments: Pope St. John Paul II in Video

To honor the feast day of our beloved Pope St. John Paul II, we have compiled footage from some of the historic moments of his pontificate. Until about 10 years ago, JPII was the only pope that many of those from our generation ever knew. Today, we ask for his intercession as the herald of the New Evangelization. In some ways, we will always remember him in our hearts as “Papa.”
