Remembering Blessed John Paul II

¬†Also, Nigerian Cardinal, Francis Arinze, head of the Pontifical Council for Inter-religious dialogue at the time of the remarkable prayer gathering in Assisi. He points to how this Polish Pontiff’s call for all to pray was addressed not just to Christians but to non-Christians as well. In this programme in which you can hear Blessed John Paul II reciting the ‘Our Father’, we also highlight how this Pope’s ‘s prayer life was inseparable from his priestly vocation. How he often told his friends: “I am first and foremost a priest”, reminding them how privileged he was to have this vocation because it allowed him to preside at the Church’s most important prayer of all: the Celebration of the Eucharist .
