October 22 is the Feast Day of St. John Paul II! St. John Paul II Catholic Academy in Dorchester celebrates this newly canonized saint.
In 1987, while speaking to young people in Los Angeles, then Pope John Paul II said, "How does one explain the ways of God? Yet, I know that, at a certain point in my life, I became convinced that Christ was saying to me what he had said to thousands before me: 'Come, follow me!' There was a clear sense that what I heard in my heart was no human voice, nor was it just an idea of my own. Christ was calling me to serve him as a priest. And you can probably tell that I am deeply grateful to God for my vocation to the priesthood."
