Many changes for good were brought about by the life of Pope John Paul II. And it goes to show spiritual justice that now that it's been a few years since his passing the Catholic Church is designating and honoring him with the status of Blessed.
This is the step before honoring Pope John Paul II as a saint in the Holy Catholic Church.
I remember the period after his passing when after a couple of days of being left with an open casket he was paraded in public. What struck me is that his body did not look like it was decaying even with no embalming. This raised the thought in me that perhaps I was looking at more than a human in the everyday sense.
Perhaps Pope John Paul II was one day going to be called a saint. It was a thrill and honor to even see the television presentation of the events in the funeral of Pope John Paul II. I felt I was there.
And with the way Mother Therese became Blessed Therese after just a few short years, I felt it wouldn't be long before our beloved Pope would too be designated Blessed.
Another event that moved me was while he was living was when Mother Therese came to visit visit the Pope. He arranged a ceremony before the mass of children doing Indian dancing in honor of her mission and ecumenical spirit in India.
