John Paul II, Religious Liberty and WYD2016 in Kraków!

Last edited 30th August 2013

In 1979, Pope John Paul II celebrated Mass in communist Poland. Who would have thought that this historic visit would contribute to the fall on communism in Poland? John Paul II's legacy of provocative non-violence has left a mark in Poland. As we prepare for World Youth Day 2016 in Kraków, let us pray this World Youth Day will be a celebration of freedom and religious liberty, following the example of JPII.
