Pope Francis on Sunday, May 17, 2020, reminded the world that tomorrow is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Saint Pope John Paul II.
The Pope’s reminder came after he prayed the Regina Caeli from the Library of the Apostolic Vatican Palace. The event was broadcast live around the world.
“Observed tomorrow is the centenary of Saint John Paul II’s birth, at Wadowice, in Poland,” Pope Francis said. “We remember him with so much affection and gratitude. Tomorrow morning, at 7:00 am I will celebrate the Holy Mass, which will be broadcast worldwide, at the altar where his mortal remains rest. He continues from Heaven to intercede for the People of God and for peace in the world.”
