by | Oct 22, 2011 | Catholicism, Pope, Saints

Today, the Church celebrates the first liturgical feast day of Pope John Paul II.

“Be Not Afraid”

After beatification last May, October 22nd was selected for the feast day of Blessed John Paul II.  During his heroic life he was a faithful and inspirational witness bringing Christians around the world closer to Christ.

“What really matters in life is that we are loved by Christ and that we love Him in return. In comparison to the love of Jesus, everything else is secondary. And, without the love of Jesus, everything is useless.” – Pope John Paul II
Blessed John Paul II, Pray for us.
