Our special window
Blessed John Paul II died seven years ago today.
My greatest memory is of the day in 1983 when I was privileged to concelebrate Mass with him in his papal chapel, and meet him afterwards. When I asked if I could take his blessing back to my family and the parish, he embraced me and said, "With all my heart, I bless you and your people."
His blessing has stuck!
The window pictured above was made and installed in the church to commemorate the event.
