In an interview about the Blessed John Paul II Shrine last week, our executive director Patrick Kelly spoke about the legacy of Blessed John Paul II. He said:
I think he was a person committed to love; that is to say, he believed that the human being is made in the image and likeness of God, and as such, every person has dignity and I think that is what caused him to have this tremendous love for humanity, for the human person.
That’s what was the engine behind his pontificate. … That’s why he traveled so much, to reach people with this message of dignity and to bring the message of Jesus Christ to people.
Oh Blessed John Paul II, pray for us, that we may be a people committed to love.
