Pope John Paul II, A Lead Role in Bringing Down the Berlin Wall

Saint Pope John Paul II had a "leading role" in bringing down the Berlin Wall, said Pope Francis after praying the Angelus with pilgrims in St. Peter's Square on the day the world celebrates the 25th anniversary of its fall, to a lengthy applause form pilgrims at the mention of the Polis Popes name.

"For a long time - explained the Pope - [the Wall] cut the city in two and was a symbol of the ideological division of Europe and the whole world. The fall came suddenly, but it was made possible thanks to the long and arduous commitment of many people who fought, prayed and suffered for this, some even with the sacrifice of their own lives".
