In Loving Memory of Pope John Paul II

For the world he was a great leader.
For the poor and oppressed he was a great friend.
For the faithful he was their greatest inspiration and source of guidance and support.

Be not afraid. Open wide the doors to Christ.

from his first public address after his election on October 16, 1978
