Saint John Paul II documentary takes two Emmys

Chicago, Ill., Dec 15, 2016 / 07:08 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Two Emmy Awards have gone to a documentary that shows St. John Paul II’s central role in the end of communism.

Liberating a Continent: John Paul II and the Fall of Communism resulted an Emmy for outstanding achievement for documentary programs in the historical category. The award went to the documentary executive producer and Knights of Columbus CEO Carl Anderson, along with producers Justyna Czyszek, Szymon Czyszek, David Naglieri, and Michele Nuzzo-Naglieri.   
 
The Emmy Awards, announced Dec. 3, came from the Chicago/Midwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, one of the academy’s largest chapters.

The 90-minute film, narrated by actor Jim Caviezel, uses rare archival footage and interviews with several heads of state. Other interviewees include papal biographer George Weigel; Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, emeritus Archbishop of Krakow, who served as St. John Paul II’s longtime assistant; and Richard Allen, former national security adviser to Ronald Reagan.

The documentary has been airing on public television across the U.S. in partnership with WTTW Chicago and the National Educational Telecommunications Association.

Our Lady of Fatima centenary: The special relationship between St John Paul II and Our Lady
30 March 2017 | by Catholic News Service   

The recently canonised pope always maintained that Our Lady of Fatima saved his life during an assassination attempt

Ahead of Pope Francis' visit to Fatima, in Portugal, in May to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Marian apparitions when three shepherd children reported seeing the Virgin Mary, Junno Arocho Esteves examines the special relationship between Our Lady of Fatima and St John Paul II


Recent popes have had a special affection for Our Lady of Fatima, but no pope's connection can match that of St. John Paul II. "We cannot forget that he was saved by Our Lady of Fatima from the assassination attempt here in St. Peter's. This is fundamental and central. It is never forgotten," Portuguese Cardinal Jose Saraiva Martins, former prefect of the Congregation for Saints' Causes, told Catholic News Service yesterday.

Mehmet Ali Agca, a Turk, shot Pope John Paul at close range as the pope was greeting a crowd in St Peter's Square on the feast of Our Lady of Fatima - 13 May 1981. Two bullets pierced the pope's abdomen, but no major organs were struck; a bullet had missed his heart and aorta by a few inches.

St John Paul would later say: "It was a mother's hand that guided the bullet's path."

Polish religious devotees and Polish Church delegates to Rome and the Vatican took place in the religious service, which was held at the late Pope's grave.

Among the congregation was also Polish Archbishop Konrad Krajewski, who served John Paul II as papal master of ceremonies and Papal Almoner. He also served Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis.

Today marks the 12th death anniversary of John Paul II, proclaimed a saint by the Catholic Church.

New Book Reveals Soviets Behind Attempted Assassination of Pope St. John Paul II
May 2, 2017 

DETROIT (ChurchMilitant.com) - A new investigation is alleging the attempt to assassinate Pope St. John Paul II on May 13, 1981 was organized by the Soviets.

Paul Kengor — a Catholic professor of political science at Grove City College and a Ronald Reagan biographer — is revealing in his newly-released book, A Pope and a President: John Paul II, Ronald Reagan and the Extraordinary Untold Story of the 20th Century, that Soviet secret agencies planned the assassination attempt.

In an email to The Daily Signal, Kengor notes the Main Intelligence Directorate — Soviet Russia's foreign intelligence organization — conducted the operation with the assistance of the KGB and operatives in Bulgarian secret police. The KGB was headed at the time by Yuri Andropov — known as the Butcher of Budapest and leader of the Soviet Union from 1982 to 1983

Remembering Joaquín Navarro-Valls
06/07/2017 10:07

Joaquin Navarro-Valls with Pope St. John Paul II in 1994

(Vatican Radio) The former Director of the Press Office of the Holy See, Joaquín Navarro-Valls, passed away on Wednesday, after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 80 years old.

Navarro trained as a medical doctor with a specialization in psychiatry, as well as in journalism, moving to Rome in the early 1970’s, becoming a foreign correspondent and eventually being elected president of the foreign press association in the city.

In 1984, he accepted an offer from Pope St. John Paul II to become the new head of the Press Office of the Holy See, a position he held until 2006. 

A statement on the website of Opus Dei, of which Navarro was a member, informs that a vigil is scheduled for Thursday, July 6, starting at 4pm in the sacristy of the basilica of the church of St. Eugene (Viale delle Belle Arti 10, Rome), and that Msgr. Mariano Fazio, Vicar General of the Prelature of Opus Dei, will celebrate a funeral Mass for him on Friday, July 7 at 11am Rome Time.

French court orders cross removed from John Paul II statue
30 October 2017 | by Tom Heneghan

Polish Prime Minister, Beata Szydlo, denounced the ruling as “political correctness..terrorising Europeans in their everyday life”.

France’s top administrative court has ordered a town in Brittany to remove a cross from an arch over a statue of Pope John Paul II that it erected 11 years ago, saying it violates the country’s legal separation of Church and State.

The Council of State, ruling on an appeal of conflicting lower court decisions, gave the town of Ploërmel six months to remove the cross. It did not mention the statue itself, presumably because the late pontiff was a public figure.

A similar statue without a cross stands next to Notre Dame cathedral in Paris and has not been challenged.

France’s 1905 law on laïcité bans any “religious sign or emblem” on a public monument or space. A local court ordered the removal of the cross in 2015 after a local secularist group sued, but a regional appeals court overturned the decision later that year.

Ploërmel’s mayor Patrick Le Diffon said the statue had wide popular support and was “an undeniable advantage for tourism”. He was reported to be considering an appeal to the European Court of Human Rights or reclassifying the square around the statue as a private space.
 
The dispute has echoed as far as the late pope’s Polish homeland, where Prime Minister Beata Szydlo denounced the ruling as “political correctness..terrorising Europeans in their everyday life”.

“We propose to move it to Poland, if the French and local authorities agree,” she told the Polish Press news agency
.

Vatican  |  Dec. 15, 2017
George Weigel Discusses His Lessons Learned From St. John Paul II
George Weigel, the late saint’s biographer, discusses his new book, Lessons in Hope, with the Register.

Edward Pentin

Pope St. John Paul II’s biographer, George Weigel, is well known for having written two seminal works on the late pontiff, but in a new book, he offers the reader something more: a behind-the-scenes, more-intimate portrait of the canonized Polish pope.

In Lessons in Hope, Weigel recounts his conversations with John Paul over a decade and a half, how he came to write the authoritative biography, and reflects on what he learned from the Polish saint.

On a visit to Rome, Weigel sat down with the Register’s Rome correspondent, Edward Pentin, Dec. 12, the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, to discuss how the hand of Providence was clear in bringing him and John Paul together in the mid-1990s.

He also discusses how the Pope gave “lessons in hope” — to make a difference, rather than surrendering to the mentality that things are the “way they are and you can’t do anything about it.”

The American biographer also shares an anecdote of being introduced to John Paul’s “spy in Russia” and what John Paul II would probably say of the situation in the Church today.

Pope John Paul II statue a 300th birthday gift to N.O.
7:16 PM. CST January 04, 2018

(Photo: Massa, Dominic)
A statue of St. Pope John Paul II was erected outside of the St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans Thursday


It took a little over two hours Thursday to move two and a half tons of marble in position in front of St. Louis Cathedral. The ever-present brass bands in Jackson Square played under cold, sunny skies and the crowd that gathered to see what was inside the large wooden crates cheered when the special birthday gift finally made it to its final destination.

It is a newly-commissioned marble statue of St. Pope John Paul II, which will be officially unveiled Sunday outside of the cathedral. The statue was designed to both commemorate the pope's 1987 visit to the city and honor New Orleans' 300th birthday.
 
The six-foot tall, life-sized likeness of Pope John Paul II, which features two children at his feet, was blessed by Pope Francis at the Vatican last November.

Archbishop Gregory Aymond will officially unveil it and bless it after the 11 a.m. Mass at St. Louis Cathedral on Sunday.

French court's decision forces a change of place for John Paul II statue

Paris, France, Mar 2, 2018 / 04:01 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- A statue of St. John Paul II will be removed from public land in a small French city, after a 2017 court order ruled its cross must be removed.

The statue, nearly 25 feet tall, portrays Pope Saint John Paul II praying beneath an arch adorned with a cross. Its Russian sculptor had given the statue to the town, and it was installed at a public car park in 2006.

Patrick Le Diffon, the mayor of Ploërmel, has sold the statue to the Catholic Church for about $24,000. The statue will be moved a few dozen yards down the street to a church-owned property neighboring a Catholic school, Agence France Presse reports. It will be visible there for residents and visitors to the small city in northwest France’s Brittany region.

Thirteenth death anniversary of Pope John Paul II
02 April 2018, 15:43

We bring you glimpses of the emotions in and around St. Peter’s Square as faithful and pilgrims from across the world reacted to the passing away of Pope John Paul II on April 2, 2015

Today is the 13th anniversary of the death of Pope Saint John Paul II.

Elected in 1978, John Paul II’s 27-year papacy was the second longest in history.

John Paul II is credited with helping bring an end to communist rule. He played a significant role in improving the Catholic Church’s relations with Judaism, Islam, the Eastern Orthodox Churches and the Anglican Communion.

Pope St John Paul was a staunch defender of the Catholic Church’s position on a number of matters, but most especially on the value of life and the family.
 
John Paul II was canonized in 2014, just 9 years after his death. His feast is celebrated on October 22 which is the day on which he was elected Pope.
