15 feast day quotes for the Feast of St. John Paul II

Denver was blessed in 1993 by the visit of St. John Paul II for World Youth Day. Countless individuals were inspired in their faith by his words, presence, and example. After all, it’s not every day that the Pope comes to your backyard! Over the almost 30 years since, his wisdom continues to resound. When you’re pope for 27 years and write scores of exhortations, letters, constitutions, and more, you’re sure to drop some spiritual wisdom along the way! Check out some of our favorite nuggets from this incredible saint!

Happy feast day! St. John Paul II, pray for us!
