Saint John Paul II, pope from 1978 – 2005, began World Youth Day, a gathering of youth from around the world every 2-3 years. He was the first non-Italian pope in almost 500 years. He travels to over 100 countries and is considered one of the most influential leaders of the 20th century. As pope, he helped bring down communism in Poland and to the rest of Europe. He continued the work of Pope John XXIII with the Second Vatican Council and worked to improve relations with other religions. Also included is a Prayer Card featuring a medal enclosed in the card and a prayer to the Virgn Mary on the back side.
