Billy Graham's words spurred me to "take the plunge", quite literally. I always believed, but never did anything about it, and one night while watching Billy Graham on TV and hearing him talk about not waiting to make yourself "presentable", but come as you are right now (his signature him is "Just As I Am"), I made the decision and was baptized not long thereafter.

John Paul II helped me to "be not afraid".

And if anyone can say JPII was an evangelist, "Billy Graham's the man who would know:

Evangelist Billy Graham took Christ at His word when He said in Mark 16:15, “Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.”

Mr. Graham has preached the Gospel to more people in live audiences than anyone else in history—over 210 million people in more than 185 countries and territories—through various meetings, including Mission World and Global Mission. Hundreds of millions more have been reached through television, video, film, and webcasts.

Don't forget, he had more than a 30 year head-start on the pope.

Indeed.

But John Paul II did his best to make up for lost time. :-)
