Second anniversary of John Paul II beatification
On May 1, 2011, for the first time a Pope beatified his predecessor. Just six years after the death of John Paul II, his successor Benedict XVI beatified him during a ceremony that attracted nearly 1.5 million people to the Eternal City.
The City of Rome went to great lengths to celebrate the beatification of the Polish Pope that spoke 'romanesco,' as the Italian dialect spoken in Rome is called.
After a sign from above, Pope John Paul II exhibit makes way to Lubbock
Months ago, Father Malcolm Neyland prayed for a sign. And he received it.
The result of Neyland’s prayer opened Friday, March 15, 2013 at the Catholic Renewal Center on Fourth Street in the form of the exhibit “I Have Come to You Again,” featuring the life and work of Pope John Paul II.
The road began in Europe for the 111 objects from the life of the man born Karol Jozef Wojtyla, winding their way from Milano, Luxembourg and Rome to Houston and Lubbock.
