President Donald Trump honored Pope St. John Paul II in a beautiful statement yesterday!

President Donald Trump commemorated Pope St. John Paul II’s first pilgrimage to Poland in 1979 in a White House statement. He particularly addressed the late pope’s first Mass during this pilgrimage on June 2, 1979.

“In his homily forty years ago, St. Pope John Paul II delivered a powerful message of hope…His words stood tall against the repressive forces of communism throughout Poland and the rest of Europe.

“He inspired courage in the hearts of millions of men and women to seek a better, freer life.”
