St. John Paul the Great

Today is the feast day of St. John Paul the Great, Karol Wojtyla, the man who was Pope for most of my lifetime.  I read the first hundred of so pages of George Weigel’s biography of him, Witness to Hope, about ten years ago, and it still sits as the base of a stack of books next to my bed.  I will finish it one day, for everything I have read, seen and heard about this man convinces me completely that he was truly, thoroughly and in totality a Man of God.
