|My wife getting a kiss from Pope John Paul II in 1995|
Our Campus Ministry office was founded a few months after he died so our founding Campus Minister, Fr. Andrew Nelson, named the campus ministry office after Pope John Paul II. We have a number of pictures of him hanging in campus ministry and we renamed it the Saint John Paul II Campus Ministry Center back in October on his first feast day.
May Saint John Paul II continue to watch over our work and in the words of then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (now Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI) at the pope's funeral:
We can be sure that our beloved Pope is standing today at the window of the Father’s house, that he sees us and blesses us. Yes, bless us, Holy Father.
