SAINT OF THE DAY
Saint John Paul II
Pope Saint John Paul II has the second-longest pontificate in history, from 1979 to 2005. He was the first non-Italian pope in over 450 years. He was born in Poland and grew up during the troubling era of Nazi occupation. He received his priestly formation in an underground seminary. As pope he was instrumental in bringing the fall of Communism in Poland and eventually all of Europe. During his long pontificate he beatified 1340 people and canonized 483 saints. He also visited 129 countries, making him one of the most well-traveled world leaders in history. He was canonized by Pope Francis in 2014 and his feast day is October 22nd.
