I’m always disappointed when I turn to the shiny pages in the middle of a Pope John Paul book only to see photos that I’ve seen a million times before. So in spirit of spending my time wisely, I’ve spent the past hour mining the internet for uncommon photos of the big man. Here are ten of them.
If you’re looking for a book to celebrate the canonization of John Paul the Great, get Jason Evert’s new book, Saint John Paul the Great. I bought it for lent, read it with my wife, loved it.
Oh, and to all of my friends partying it up in Rome this week; totally offended you took your spouse/brother/sister/parent/friend instead of me.
