Eternal rest grant unto him, Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace.
I saw him Christmas Day were he was co-celebrating Mass at the cathedral in Warsaw. He was looking very tired and ill. A great Pole.
God rest him. A great Catholic and a great defender of Western civilization.
I still want to know if Gerald Ford's Poland Ally comment was a Security Briefing Slip.
A friend of mine a big fan of Reagan and John Paul noted he was a Jesuit and they were the original coders and noted a rare article that asked what was the behind the scenes workings of the Church in conjunction with Reagan and Lady Thatcher to bring down the Soviets. Also questions abound was John Paul part of the Polish Resistance during WWII....
The interviewer got nothing out of the Jesuits he was interviewing. :-).
Love the Polish people, note if Reagan did help him how Obama has Shafted the Catholic Church and the Polish People with renegging on the high theatre shield we were to give them.
I beginning to revile everything he does to what we believe in and those who we stand with, he has pissed on them all....
