Canonisation of John Paul II & John XXIII – LIVE on Xt3.com

Last edited 10th April 2014

"Blessed John XXIII was a bit of a 'country priest,' a priest who loved each of the faithful and knew how to care for them; he did this as a bishop and as a nuncio... As for Blessed John Paul II, I think of him as 'the great missionary of the church, because he was a man who proclaimed the Gospel everywhere." – Pope Francis

Transcendent ordeal of an outback pilgrim

Last edited 7th March 2014
