Top Ten Greatest Popesanthonybecerra831
The Top Ten
John Paul II is the reason I am Catholic. I have never known a greater man that experienced Nazi and Soviet occupation and still kept his faith. He was the burning candle in an age of darkness. He saw the good in western ideas and connected freedom and individuality to Jesus' teachings. His efforts thwarted communism and saved countless people from totalitarianism.
He helped everyone in the world and was a hero to all. He helped the poor, he spoke out against communism, and he challenged the boundaries of the Catholic Church! He deserves to be a saint!
There's a reason why The Vatican is making him a saint in 2014 this year!
He Was an Great man to MANY people!
He's also one of my personal heroes for the Catholic Priesthood
