Papal Mass in remembrance of Pope John Paul II
Today was the one year anniversary of the death of Pope John Paul II. The mass was presided by Pope Benedict XVI. There were hundreds of people there. The mass was in Italian, but I was amazingly able to understand; it was as if the Pope willed me to understand. The homily was especially amazing. It was emotional and inspirational.
I am very grateful that I’ve been able to learn Italian because it has enabled me to understand the profound words of the Pope.
