JPII and the Current Cry: “We Want God”

JPII and the Current Cry: “We Want God” – Ascension Press (7/24/20)

Excerpt: “Authors and scholars have recounted that the pope’s journey to Poland marked a shift toward the demise of communism in Europe. His words of encouragement and witness of strong discipleship, in the face of the powers of evil, helped drive oppression away. There is no overestimating the impact that John Paul II had in aiding the crush of these powers. However, in typical fashion, it is very likely that the pope would deflect this credit off of himself and place it on two factors: the true presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist and the multitudes that gathered that day. “

Thomas Griffin teaches Apologetics in the religion department at a Catholic high school on Long Island and lives with his wife. He received a master’s degree in theology and is currently a master’s candidate in philosophy. He writes for several Catholic media outlets.
