Pope John Paul II



"Pope John Paul II was born on this day in 1920. During his pontificate, he often invited cardinals in Rome who were over 80 years of age to lunch on his birthday. There, they discussed Church issues. Even though their age prevented them from participating in any papal conclave, Pope John Paul still wanted to show them he appreciated their wisdom and insights."

  1. 9 years ago today, I was induced with my oldest,and I was thrilled that he would be born on the Pope's birthday. Peter chose to come in his own sweet time, and was born instead at 12:31 AM on May 19!

    Enjoy the carefree days of summer break. (As carefree as one can be when pregnant in the summer!)
    You look great!
