Remembering JPII

In honor of the upcoming beatification of Pope John Paul II, I share a favorite memory in the attached video.  Second below is a video of our Young Adult pilgrim group from the Archdiocese of Atlanta being introduced at the general audience.  My pilgrim friend got crazy with his video recorder at the end. The third video below is Pope John Paul II blessing the pilgrims from the United States of America.

If you have a memory you would like to share, record a Youtube video and check out this link for instructions   I’m also posting mine on my personal blog.

  1. Thanks for sharing your memories of JP2, Jan! That’s quite cool about the wind you experienced at Mass — as you were talking about how quickly you dried off from the rain, it reminded me of how, during the miracle of the sun at Fatima, the previously-drenched pilgrims were suddenly dry.

  2. Jan, I enjoyed your article your article on JPII. I was looking for a link to my site “The Secular Franciscan” www, (or and didn’t find it. I wonder if you can add it to the other links you have on your home page. I have your link on our fraternity website and try to keep it up to date.
    Tom Bello our National Minister has looked at the site and has approved of it, saying it was a very good apostolate. Thank you, Dennis Mallon, Peace and all Good.
    Happy Easter

  3. Nice reflection. I remember the image of the wind blowing the gospel on his casket, though I witnessed it on TV. Is that a picture of a young JPII over your right shoulder? He was someone very special for our time (a difficult time). Peace and all good.

  4. The poster in the background is a young Fr. Karol Wojtyla in 1946 — The year he was ordained a priest. The photo is often titled “On a Mission from God”

  5. What a beautiful reflection. The Holy Spirit was visibly present in so many instances in his (JPII) life. You are so blessed to have been present on one of those occasions.
