St. John Paul the Great

On Sunday April 27, 2014 Pope Frances cannonized two popes, St. John XXIII and St. John Paul II.  This was a historical day in the catholic church as two popes were cannonized on the same day, never before has that happened.

St. John Paul II was a great pope.  He gave us so much in his 27 years as pope.  One of the greatest gifts he gave us was his teachings on the human person.  During his Wednesday audiences in St Peter’s Square, he gave many talks on the gift of our sexuality and his vision of the human person body, soul, and spirit.  St. John Paul II portrays a beautiful vision of sexuality in his Theology of the Body.  He encourages a true reverence for the gift of our sexuality and challenges us to live it in a way worthy of our great dignity as human persons. 

We are so blessed to have been given this awesome Pope to guide us and teach us the true meaning of our sexuality and the human person.  Let us live by these words of St. John Paul the Great.  “Live Chastity, Don’t do drugs, Strive to become a Saint”  and “Do not be afraid”.
