I’m not a Catholic and in any case don’t know the whys and wherefores of sainthood. I DO know a LOT about the Cold War, the conduct of it and the factors that led to the collapse of the Soviets and the Bloc, and in THIS respect I think it’s fair to say that John Paul II was a GIANT of a man. That’s why his photo is on my wall, right next to Reagan’s.
Bless you PaleobBob!
May you be blessed here and hereafter!
