*BEST OF DTB #81* The Catholic Defender: John Paul II We Still Love You!
It's hard to believe that he is gone, it seems but yesterday that he would announce to the world in 60 languages the love of Christ for the World.
Pope John Paul II would proclaim this in the language of love. The impact that he had for many youth I believe was instrumental in saving a generation.
I was privileged to have been in a crowd to see Pope John Paul II. It was Chicago, Grant Park, 1979, a truly blessed time and place as nearly 2,000,000 people gathered to see him.
He anounced to the mass throngs of people a greeting in the name of Christ in several languages.
I was able to get within 160 yards of where the Pope's platform where he held Mass. What a beautiful event.
This was St.Peter in our midst and I was among those whose his shadow came upon.
This was Jesus true Chief Steward imparting the Gospel. I will never forget Pope John Paul II!
