On the Feast of St. John Paul II

At a general audience with Pope John Paul II in July, 2002

Happy Feast of St. John Paul II! Here are a couple of resources that I wanted to pass along before the day is over:

1) Jason Evert has written a book called St. John Paul the Great: His First Loves – I can’t wait to read it!

2) I stumbled upon this cute animated video entitled “St. John Paul II, the Life of a Holy Pope,” and plan to share it with my children tomorrow.

3) One of my favorite St. John Paul II quotes: To maintain a joyful family requires much from both the parents and the children. Each member of the family has to become, in a special way, the servant of the others…

Many blessings to you and your families on this great day! St. John Paul the Great, pray for us!

    Thanks for the resources Kat! Here is a cool quote I found for my acting daughter on the Feast of JPII ~ “the actor had a function not unlike a priest: to open up, through the materials of this world, the realm of transcendent truth. His “theater of the inner word” would make present universal truths and universal moral values, which stood in judgment on the here-and-now and offered the world the possibility of authentic transformation” (Witness to Hope, p. 37).
