    Vatican Adventure EXHILERATING Roman EXPERIENCES of PROF.GEORGE MENACHERY Roman Holidays of the Writer turn into a Memorable VATICAN ADVENTURE Prof. George Menachery had read and written much about PAPAL ELECTIONS. When he went to Rome as a free lancer for the October 1978 election where the conclave of Cardinals chose the present Pontiff His Holiness Pope John Paul II, he had merely wanted to experience at first hand the joy and excitement of a papal election as described in classics he had read many times over such as Morris West’s ‘SHOES OF THE FISHERMAN’, Irvinng Stone’s ‘The Agony and the Ecstasy’, and Henry Morton Robinson’s ‘The Cardinal’. But his Roman holidays turned into a memorable adventure. Read about it here. October 14,1978. Morning. The Cardinals were arriving one by one for the ‘Mass for the Election of the Pope’. They entered the cobbled courtyard behind St.Peter’s Basilica in huge cars and walked towards the special back-door of the Basilica quite close to the main altar.After the Mass they would enter the Conclave (‘with key’) and proceed to elect behind locked doors the next spiritual leader of the crores-strong Catholic community of the world and the temporal head of the State of Vatican. I was the only Indian among the 1300 press reporters from all over the world in Rome that October accredited by Archbishop Pancharoli’s Vatican Press Office. Of these 300 belonged to the English-speaking group. The Italian group was 320-strong, the French were 200 odd, and the Spanish/Portuguese 140. In addition there were more than 300 TV crew members. Apart from two or three selected TV teams only fourteen of the 1300 reporters who had arrived to report the papal elections were permitted to enter the Basilica for the function. These were selected by lot and I was lucky to get one of those fourteen coveted cards. Some well-known magazines and papers from the States and France were willing to pay huge amounts for this card. In fact some of the fourteen photographers present now at the Basilia door represented the most famous magazines and papers, having procured the cards from the original lucky winners paying quite hefty sums. One of the very first to arrive to attend that crucial function before the all important Conclave locked its doors against the outside world was Lawrence Cardinal Picachy of Calcutta. As he got down from the huge car on to the vast brick-paved yard and proceeded towards the Basilica my Minolta flashed twice or thrice. One or two other pressmen also photographed the Cardinal from India, I noticed with pleasure. It was with a huge coterie of admirers and followers that Cardinal Siri arrived.So also Cardinal Benelli. Both were front runners in the first ballots in the previos election and one of these two was expected to come out of the Conclave as the new Pope. Hence the photographers vied with each other in taking their pictures. I also took one each. But I was now mainly waiting for the arrival of Cardinal Parecattil of Ernakulam, ‘my Cardinal’. Then came Cardinal Rossi of Propaganda in the company of Archbishop Lourdusamy (now a Cardinal). They talked serious business for a while before the Cardinal entered the Basilica and Lourdusamy went back. I didn’t forget to snap the duo. But now the sound of music from inside the Basilica was growing louder and louder. Like the Wedding-guest in Coleridge’s ‘Ancient Mariner’ I had to still reluctantly tarry waiting for my Cardinal to arrive. There was still no sign of his car. Most of my fellow photographers were preparing to enter the church to cover the Mass and the decisive guide-line speech to the Cardinals. It was then that I noticed a solitary figure in red approaching from the huge gateway. This Cardinal looked lonely, tired, and crestfallen, yet somehow upholding the dignity of a prince of the Church. He alone among all the Cardinals arrived on foot, walking hurriedly towards the Basilica. No camera aimed to take his picture coming as he was without benefit of admirers and supporters. One or two of the big-time photgraphers from the US were looking at this pitiable figure almost it seemed contemptously. “There are lots of unused frames in my Minolta. I need only a few more to cover Cardinal Parecattil. So why not snap him, whom nobody appears to care for?”, I thought. And so I took a photo of this lonely man. He raised his head in some surprise, and went in silently. Soon afterwards Cardinal Parecattil came from the Jianicolo hospital where he was staying, smiled at me,and went in, the very last Cardinal to enter the Basilica. October 16,1978. Evening. With thousands I stood in the Piazza San Petro between the colossal columns of Bernini near his fountain and the huge obelisk in the Vatican looking at the thin pipe raising its head to the left of Michaelangelo’s mammoth dome from the famous fresco-adorned Sistine Chapel to see whether it would spit white smoke this time, fiftysix long hours and seven ballots after the Cardinals had been locked up inside to elect one, most probably from among themselves, as the new successor of St. Peter. Two days back I had the rarest of privileges to study the arrangements in the conclave area as the goddess of fortune had given me one of the sixty cards distributed by lot among the 1300 journalists to inspect the secrets of the Conclave. Now I looked at the balcony of the Basilica to test my newly bought binoculars. Suddenly the tip of the pipe began to spit white smoke. The crowd began a deafening non-stop shout “Bianca! Bianca!” It’s white, it’s white. “We Have a New Pope! We Have a New Pope!”. Tens of thousands were concentrating on the balcony where the new Pope’s name would be announced and where the Pope himself would eventually appear. But within twentyfour minutes of the election of the Pope Osservatore Romano the official organ of the Vatican came out at 6.43 p.m. carrying a half-page picture of the new Pope. I bought a copy from the boy selling the paper like hot cakes among the crowd to see who had been finally elected. To my surprise I saw the lonely hero of my photograph keenly looking at me from the front page. He was the new Pope. But I didn’t know until then the name or country of Karol Joseph Woitiva. Even when Cardinal Felici announced the name in sonorous Latin very few in the crowd could recognise it. Once again the Italian adage was proved true: “He who goes into the Conclave Pope comes out Cardinal” - and the last and very least became the first, a Polaco, a non-Italian in 400 years, that too from the underground of a communist country - from the fourth world, so to say - as had happened to Antony Quinn as Kiril Cardinal Lakota in the Holywood version of The Shoes of the Fisherman. The huge lamps of the Vatican Palace and the Propaganda College started to flood the St. Peter’s Square, together with the huge Roman moon lighting up the whole area and converting night into day. By this time the crowd had swelled to some two-hundred thousand souls filling the whole square and the Via De La Conciliazione up to river Tiber. It was another half an hour before the Pope appeared on the balcony to give his blessing Urbi et Orbi - to the City and to the World. Before giving that Latin blessing he talked to the people in simple Italian - to their great delight and to the displeasure of the Curia officials. ‘Viva il Papa’ Long Live the Pope, the crowd shouted again and again. ‘ Polonnia! Polonnia!’ Poland,Poland. Bearing witness to the birth of a new era the bells in the four hundred churches of Rome began to ring, led by the eleven ton Kanchenone of the St. Peter’s Basilica. October 18, 1978. Morning. When I came to see Cardinal Parecattil once again at the hospital Gianicolo I showed him the pictures I had taken. He couldn’t believe that I had taken a picture of the Pope before the election, because nobody thought he would be elected. It was in a way my visit to Cardinal Parecattil at Ernakulam to bid him bon voyage that was the occasion for my deciding to go to Rome. Bishop Sebastian Mankuzhikkary who knew the Cardinal’s affection for me jokingly said to me then, ‘Are you not going with the Cardinal to Rome?’ I replied, ‘ I will go if he takes me with him.’ After the departure of the Cardinal for the election I brooded over the possibility of going to Rome for the election. I had read up so much on the election for many many years that my desire to be in Rome during an election had become something of an obsession with me. This was my last chance, I thought. When I told Bishop Kundukulam of Trichur and others the same day about my desire they all encouraged me very much in this matter. And so I arrived in Rome just two days after the Cardinal’s arrival. He was very glad to see me there. I was able to meet him there often and learn about the discussions among the Cardinals about the forthcoming election. Cardinal Picachy and Archbishop Lourdusamy also talked to me often. It all helped me to send relevant reports to India. October 21,1978. After meeting every Cardinal individually and after meeting the representatives of the various countries who had arrived to congratulate the Pope he gave an audience to the Press on the eve of the “Coronation”, to which not only the 1300 journalists with Vatican’s accreditation but many more were invited. While waiting at the bottom of the Great Staircase leading to the hall in the Vatican Palace where the audience was to take place somebody who knew me told me to proceed. I didn’t know why I should try to go before the others. Any way i tried. But the two Swiss Guards stooped me with their extended spears. I climbed down the steps. Then somebody from the Oriental congregation appeared from behind the Swiss Guards from the audience hall and beckoned me. Though the guards protested at first finally they allowed me to go up, also possibly because they were amused at my timidity. When I entered the hall many seats were already taken by officials and so on. The man from the Congregation was leading me in when a Rev. Sr. took me under her charge and led me to the benches. She sat at the aisle end of one bench. When I tried to take the seat by her side she asked me to take the seat behind her. At that time I took it as an insult, but she only smiled. She was the person on Radio Vatican who was in charge of all the Polish programmes, and as such was very familiar with the new Pope as he used to give many talks to his people in communist Poland over Radio Vatican. She was a close friend and room-mate or something of the Sr. in charge of the Indian Programmes and hence had seen me often at the Radio Station. That was why she took me under her charge. When the Pope finally came into the hall and was proceeding to the rostrum he looked in our direction, and seeing the Polish Sr. came towards us. He came and stood in front of us and began to talk to the Rev. Sr. Although the well-built ecclesiastic who was the Pope’s body guard tried to prevent it I shook hands with the Pontiff. The Sr. whispered to me, “Say something to the Pope, you may never get such a chance in your whole life.” I gathered all my courage, and in spite of the tough body guard’s piercing looks, asked the pope:” Your predecessor Pope Paul the Sixth did not come to Kerala when he came to India, though there is an Apostolic Church there. Will Your Holiness visit Kerala?” I completed the question somehow. I do not know whether the Holy Father heard or understood me fully. But he replied in perfect English, “Why Not?” That was quite enough for me, and for the body guard too I suppose because he whisked the Pope away towards the rostrum with all his might. After that the next day’s Mass for the Commencement of the Ministry and “Coronation” -the term is no more used and the three tiered crown is no more seen- was not such a great treat though it was plesant to watch the whole function on the steps of the facade from the vantage point of the balconies over the Bernini columns in the company of fellow journalists. January,1985. Why was Cardinal Woitila so late that day on which the Conclave began? Why was he so tired-looking? These questions troubled my mind often in the next several years whenever I looked at the rare Photo that I had published in some papers and at the Vatican accreditation and all those rare and wonderful press cards I was lucky to draw. Then I went to Rome once again in 1985. I had an appointment with the chief of the Vatican Museums. I had persuaded him to allow me to take the photographs of the hundred odd statues of almost all the popular Hindu Gods and Godesses that the ethnological museum possessed for my Indology volume. But when I arrived in the museum for the final agreement the director was absent. But he had made arrangements for me to meet his assistant Msgr. Pankowiski, who was from Poland. To curry favour with him I told him that I had organised much of the Malankara Golden Jubilee Exhibition at Kottayam in 1980 that was inaugurated by the Polish Cardinal Rubin, and a lage picture of the Polish Cardinal was displayed by the organisers in the SEERI building . Then I told him jokingly that I was the only journalist who knew a Polaco would be elected to the Holy See, and I told him the story of the late-coming Cardinal Woitiva. The asst. director jumped up from his seat and told me the following interesting story breathlessly gesticulating and standing all the time. “Do you know why he was late that day?” I said I did not know. Then he said: “ You know he is a great devotee of the blessed Virgin Mary, like most of us Poles.” That was quite true. Most Poles gift you pictures of our lady of Chestochowa, as the Rev. Sr. from radio vatican had done when we met during the Papal audience.”Almost the whole week long before the commencement of the Conclave ( the Msgr. continued) the cardinal was away at the Mountain Shrine of mary at Mentorella, praying for the church to get a Good Shepherd at the election.On the morning of the Conclave after the prayers he stood talking to a Polish monk there for a few minutes. So when he came to the valley climbing down two miles the only bus to Rome had already gone. Rome was far away and he had to reach Rome before the doors of the Conclave were locked. Then he got a bus but it broke down some thirty miles away from Rome. (Cardinal Woitiva travelled only by bus, and always wore only tattered old black clothes.) There was no other bus. No car also. He approached the driver of an unused bus who was on holiday and told him his plight. The driver felt pity for the Cardinal and took him to the Vatican, the Msgr. concluded. Now I understood why he was late that morning and also why he looked so tired and depressed. Only then did I understand the reason why the Pope soon after his election flew to Mentorella in a helicopter (not in a bus this time!) to venerate the little wooden statue of Mary there. That journey was the prologue to the new Pope’s many journeys to destinations beyond Rome.

J.THOMAS - chennai, india ..... Pope John Paul
Tuesday, June 5 2001 6:41:26

    Respected and most Rev.Holy Father, Sub:Request for - Blessings and prayer for bringing out information in the "WEBSITE" about Catholic churches in India. Ref: Our web page at " www.rcchurchesindia.com   ". For the glory of God, I wish to bring out a web page containing the photograph and details of churches with mass timings of important Catholic churches in India. I was thinking about Holy mass which is obligatory for every Catholic. In the modernised city life due to professional and other engagements, lay people travel to different places around the city missing the Sunday Holy Mass and sometimes fall pray to the fanatic Protestant Churches. Moreover, the failure to attend service at that time is also due to ignorance of mass-timings and the location of the church. The history of christianity in India dates back to the 1st centuary when St.Thomas one of the twelve apostle of Lord Jesus christ came to India. The christianity in India existed from the beginning of Christian era. Many christians are not aware of this fact. Moreover, I have also found that there are many web site about churches which do not contain the mass timings. Hence, I thought it apt that a web site containing the photograph of churches with details of mass timings, communication address and with a brief history of the church will encourage the laity. This could also be used as a ready reckoner by the local as well as the catholics living around the world free of cost. In this task, I need your kind blessings and prayers which will be of great help. Thanking you, Yours in his service (J.THOMAS) 10-A, I Street, Taylors Estate, Kodambakkam, Chennai - 600 024, Tamil Nadu, India PHONE: 044-4840045 AND 044-4817360...

    IT IS THE AMERICAN WAY; DEAR POPE, YOUR GREAT EMINENCE. IT SEEMS THAT IT THE AMERICAN WAY TO FIGHT TILL THEY ARE DEFEATED. IN THE NEXT LOS ANGELES MAYORAL ELECTION, IT IS MOST IMPORTANT FOR CATHOLICS IN THE AREA TO VOTE FOR MR JAMES HAHN AS THE NEXT MAYOR FOR THE RESULTS OF THE ELECTION IN THE CITY WILL DETERMINE THE POLITICAL OUTLOOK OF THE UNITED STATES FOR THE NEXT 50 YEARS, GOVERNORSHIPS, CONGRESSIONAL ELECTIONS, MAYORAL ELECTIONS AND THE PRESIDENCY. THE WESTERN-EUROPEAN ORIENTATION OF THE UNITED STATES MUST NOT BE SACRIFICED ON THE ALTAR OF THE BUSH FAMILY POLITICAL CALCULATIONS AND FAMILY TIES. INDEED, I HAVE COME TO THE FORCED DECISION THAT IT IS ONLY IF THEY FALL THAT MY FREEDOM WILL BE REGAINED AND MY MONEY RETURNED. THE PEOPLE WHO PREACH HUMANITY AND CIVIL RIGHTS ONLY BELIEVE IT FOR THEIR OWN BREED AND FOR THEIR DISCRIMINATION AND THE DESIRE NOT TO LISTEN TO THE VOICE OF WISDOM THEY MUST PAY UNLESS THEY DO WHAT IS REQUIRED OF THEM. THEY ARE; PRESIDENT WALKER BUSH LAURA BUSH COLLIN LUTHER POWELL THE FATHER BUSH BARBARA BUSH BILL JEFFERSON CLINTON HILLARY CLINTON TED KENNEDY JESSE JACKSON SENIOR JEB BUSH ALBERT SHARPTON CHRISTOPHER PEREZ JOSEPH WYNN THE KEY LATINO LEADERS IN THE AMERICAN POLITICAL LANDSCAPE. THEY MUST ALL PAY POLITICALLY AND OTHER WISE FOR UNDERMINING THE POPE, THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, WESTERN PRINCIPLES AND THE RULE OF LAW. THEY MUST FALL LIKE A PACK OF CARDS THROUGH IMPEACHMENTS AND POLITICAL OBLIVION AND DISGRACE, CATASTHROPHY NOT ONLY THEM BUT THEIR FAMILIES AS WELL UNLESS THEY RETURN MY MONEY AND SECURE MY FREEDOM. INEVITABLY THEY LACK THE ACT OF COMPASSION AND HUMANITY WHILE THEY BREAK THE NORMS OF LAW and the natural ORDER OF THINGS. ABORTION MUST BE TOTALLY BANNED IN THE UNITED STATES, THE DEATH PENALTY REVIEWED, IMMIGRANTS LEGALIZED OR DEPORTED AND THE WAVE OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION STOPPED. AND UNLESS THEY RETURN MY MONEY AND RESTORE MY FREEDOM BY THE ARREST AND APPREHENSION OF THE AGENT JOSEPH WYNN CHASING ME, THEY FACE AN UNCERTAIN FUTURE DESPITE THEIR THREATS, TO MY LIFE AND TO OTHERS, THEY PLAY WITH FIRE AND ANY ONE WHO DOES THAT WITH IMPUNITY WILL BE BURNT.

    Dear Holy Father, Please pray for us! The Blessed Mother was right in saying that the Catholic church will be in turmoil and that there will be Bishops against Bishops and Cardinals against Cardinals. We feel that in our own Archdiocese. Traditional Catholic churches are being closed down and forced to merge with more liberal churches. Traditional churches are being sold to other denominations and new churches are being built that are Protestant in nature. The center of our Mass, the Eucharist, isn't even visible from the Church proper. Parishioners are not even kneeling and showing reverence during Consecration. Please help us to remain the Traditional Catholics that we are. To have adoration towards the Blessed Sacrament and to honor the Blessed Virgin. Some Priests and Bishops are not stressing the importance of this and claiming that we need to change. Our parish does not think this change is for the better. Do You? ...

    DEAR HOLY FATHER , THE SITUATION REMAINS THE SAME. IT IS TIME WE TAKE ANOTHER APPROACH TO THE ANTI EUROPEAN AND ANTI CATHOLIC PRESIDENT BUSH OF THE UNITED STATES. A PRAYER THAT WILL MAKE HIS PRESIDENCY FALL LIKE A PACK OF CARDS IN AN IMPEACHMENT AND FUL REMOVAL FROM OFFICE IS THE NEXT STEP. I WANT HIS ADMINISTRATION TO MAKE MONUMENTAL MISTAKES THAT WILL LEAD TO THE PRESIDENT'S REMOVAL FROM OFFICE AND THE LOSE OF THE NEXT CONGRESSIONAL AND PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS BY BOTH THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY TO A NEW COALITION OF INDEPENDENTS -PARTY THAT WILL SWEEP THE NEXT CONGRESSIONAL AND [PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS IN THE UNITED STATES. ALL THOSE WHO SIT ON MY GLORY, BLESSINGS AND MONEY, JESSE JACKSON, CLINTON, THE BUSHES , ALL BLACK POLITICIANS AND THEIR COLLABORATORS MUST ALL BE BROUGHT DOWN POLITICALLY INN THE UNITED STATES I WANT TO SEE MASSIVE DEFECTION BY CONGRESS MEN, GOVERNORS, MAYORS AND OTHER POLITICIANS FROM THE REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC PARTIES TO THE INDEPENDENT MOVEMENT-PARTY THAT WILL WIN THE NEXT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS, REMOVE THE PRESENT PRESIDENT FROM OFFICE AND WIN THE NEXT CONGRESSIONAL ELECTIONS. THEN PERHAPS THEY WILL RELEASE MY MONEY AND SET ME FREE FOR LIKE UNTO THEM WILL WE DO LIKE MOSES DID TO THE EGYPTIANS UNTIL THEY LET THE PEOPLE OF THE LORD GO TO THE PROMISED LAND IN FREEDOM AND WITH RICHES TO THE PROMISED LAND. THANKS YOUR ROYAL AND EMINENCE . KAYODE FAMILONI...

    DEAR POPE , YOUR GREAT EMINENCE. THE WORKER OF INIQUITY ARE LEARNING A LESSON AND WILL SOON LEARN MORE AS TIME GOES ON. THEIR DOWN FALL IS IMMINENT UNTIL THEY RESPECT THEIR ELDERS AND DO AS ADVISED. MY MONEY MUST BE RETURNED EVEN IF I NEVER PARTICIPATE IN AMERICAN POLITICS. FOR THEY WILL FALL AND IT IS JUST BEGINNING AS THEY DISREGARD THE ADVISE OF YOUR EMINENCE. THEY PLAN MANY DIABOLICAL THINGS, SEND ME TO JAIL, KILL ME, OR SEND ME BACK TO NIGERIA, BUT THEY ONLY DIG A GRAVE FOR THEM SELVES FOR THEY WILL LEARN AS THEY ARE LEARNING UNTIL THE POINT OF DISAGREEMENT IS RESOLVED IN MY FAVOR. THEY MUST RETURN MY MONEY, THEY MUST RESTORE MY FREEDOM, THEY MUST RESPECT HE POPE, THEY MUST BAN ABORTION, THEY MUST PUT AN END TO ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, THEY MUST BE MORE MODERATE IN THEIR ECONOMIC PRIORITIES FOR UNTIL THEY DO MOST OF THESE DEMANDS, THEIR FALL IS IMMINENT. INDEED, I CANNOT THANK YOUR HOLY SEA ADN MAJESTY ENOUGH AS I AM SERIUOSLY CONTEMPLATING CONVERTING FULLY IN TO CATHOLISM IF IT WILL SOLVE SOME OF THE PROBLEMS I HAVE. BUT I I AM AN ANGLICAN LIKE QUEEN ELIZABETH AND THIS POSES A PROBLEM. HOWEVER , THE LORD WILL BRING A WAY FOR ME TO BE A GOOD CHRISTIAN AND PERSON FOR THE BENEFIT OF EVERYONE. WHILE THE REPUBLICAN PARTY CONTINUE IN THEIR WAYS BY WANTING TO EXECUTE MACVEIGH AND FAILING TO RESOLVE MY PROBLEM, POWER IS IS SLIPPING AWAY FROM THEM UNLESS THEY MAKE A DRAMATIC RETREAT. I CANNOT BUT THANK HIS EMINENCE FOR ALL THE CHRISTIAN LOVE FOR HUMANITY AND THE POOR AND POWERLESS. THANKS KAYODE FAMILONI ...

THEY PAY FOR THEIR INFIDELITY TO THE POPE AND FOR NOT LISTENING, THE MODERATE FORCE THAT WILL SWEEP AWAY THE FORCES OF RACISM AND DISCRIMINATION AND CRIMINAL BENT WILL SOON BE DEFEATED AND PUSHED TO THE DUST BIN OF HISTORY. ON THE NEXT PRESIDENTIAL LEVEL, MY CANDIDATE BE HE A N INDEPENDENT OR AS A REPUBLICAN HAS BEEN SUGGESTED TO BE MR. BILL GATES, THE MICROSOFT BILLIONAIRE WHO HAS SHOWN BY HIS ACTIVITIES THAT HE WILL MAKE A GOOD AMERICAN PRESIDENT. IN LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, I WANT THE HOLY SEA TO ORDER ALL CARDINALS AND CHURCHES , ALL CATHOLICS TO VOTE ENMASSE FOR THE ANGLO SAXON-WHITE CANDIDATE FOR HIS MODERATION AND CONCERN FOR THE POOR AND THE WEAK. HIS NAME IS MR , HAHN AND I WANT THE POPE TO ENSURE THAT ALL CATHOLICS WITHIN THE LOS ANGELES AREA ARE ADVISED OR ORDERED TO VOTE FOR THIS MAN IN ALL THE LOS ANGELES COUNTIES IN THE NEXT DEMOCRATIC PARTY PRIMARY THAT WILL DETERMINE WHO THE NEXT MAYOR OF THE CITY WILL BE. ON MY MONEY THEY MEET A CERTAIN DEFEAT AND WILL BE DISGRACED. IWANT SIMPLY A STRONG PRAYER DONE FOR ME THAT ALL LOST GOODS AND BLESSINGS BE THEY IN THE MAIL, CHECKS, BANK AS INVESTMENTS ALL EARTHLY BLESSINGS THAT HAVE BEEN STOLEN FROM KAYODE FAMILONI IN ALL THE FOUR CORNERS OF THE WORLD SHOULD RETURN TO HIM IN A MOST DRAMATIC WAY. THE FORCES OF EVIL HAVE THEIR DAYS NUMBERED FOR THEM FOR THEY BITE THE HANDS THAT FED THEMA ND SHOW UNGRATEFUL NESS FOR KINDNESS AND LOYALTY. THANKS KAYODE FAMILONI...

    Dearest Holy Father, We feel comfortable at our faith under your great Leadership. But think people in Europe/America and Philippines need more advice to be God-fearing. They should give up their bad culture (open sex, divorces, shattered family relaion etc..) and be ideal and give more attention to moral activities. I hope you will keep going all your good services and emphasize my views to those people. May Jesus bless all.Happy to be remembered in your Prayers. With love.. Thomas and Family Members. ...

    dear pope, i have moved to los angeles, california after all the spiritual problems faced in the state of new york. i still face the problems i have as the democrats and the republican are still bent on doing whta is the right thing to do without discrimination and hatred. indeed, i have tried my best and unles a miracle occurs the hope of the getting back my money and regaining my freedom is very slim. i helped the republicans to attain power and what i get is total betrayal and abandonement from them. i face great obstacles be cause i supported them from the forces of darkness in the democratic party, nowe they add their own a sign of disloyalty that must not go unpurnished. this is more than the principles of humanity,m this is the principle orf right from wrong and i want to see them all fall from their high pedes tals for their disloyalty and arrogance not only to you, queen elizabeth but also to me. as we have often known, unless the forces of evil be thougth a spiritual lesson they will continue to think that the world is theirs. if the republicans and the democrats dont come to a concensus and return my money, they must pay in such a way in which the money will bnot only be returned but they will lose power and be disgraced. they perpetuate evil while all i want is my money and freedom and they mess with what they will never understand until the lord teaches them a lesson for all eternity., indeed, the spiritual help from the holy sea is most appreciated. the arrogant and racist and discriminatory ones are about to be taught alesson for all eternity thanks kayode familoni...

    Today I shall use the occasion of the birthday of Pope John Paul 2 to once again say what terrible things he represents. There were unspeakable atrocities such as genocide and slaughter of children committed on a great scale to spread that shitty philosophy that he is the titular head of. He is nothing more than a warlord with is own private army. Yes, today this army of his is a ceremonial thing, but that's because in the past, the other warlord Popes used that army to brutally subjugate the people in the name of their fucked-up beliefs. The atricities committed back then have made it possible for John Paul 2 to have only a ceremonial army because the subjugation of the masses has already been done long ago so he can put on this bullshit pious front that far too many of you believe. So, on this 81st birthday of The Pope, I would like to say " Fuck you" to him, and Fuck God and Jesus as well....

    Your Holiness, I am a Protestant who greatly respects and admires your life and your work on behalf of our Lord Jesus Christ. Please know that many of us are ushered to prayer because of your strength, courage and single-mindedness. I pray for you each time I hear of your tireless devotion in bringing Christ's message of redemption, reconciliation and hope throughout His world. I know you must be weary yet envigorated by the Holy Call to which you most ardently and faithfully cling. To say I love you in Christ is my feeble way of communicating my personal gratitude for the personal comfort I receive each time I have news of your faithfulness. Your example causes me to desire and move toward a life of devotion, prayer and dependence on God. Your Holiness (I'm not sure I'm saying all of this properly) inspires us all to lay hold of that great claim: "Christ in me, the Hope of Glory." I saw your smile as you watered the olive tree in Malta on your recent visit. "Blessed are the Peacekeepers......" I look forward to joining you in that Great Kingdom some day. Press on, dear Brother (if I'm permitted to say that... if not, please forgive my presumptiveness for I am naive, yet respectful). The prayers of many like me are with you. May the peace of Christ and the power of His Holy Spirit keep you strong until that Great Day. Warmly in Christ, Jim Roberts Orlando, FL USA...

    9 May 2001. Malta This is an open message for His Holiness John Paul. AS a British Citizen on holiday in Malta during your wonderful and historic pilgramage in the steps of St Paul, who visited Malta in about AD 50 I would like to say that it was wonderful to see you looking so relaxed on your visit here this week, and the rapturous welcome from the Maltese people.You are truly an inspiration to us all.# Perhaps you can tell me what is the significance to Malta and the world of the miraculous happenings at the Church in Rabat, where the Madonna is said to be weeping tears of blood ? I am concerned about these reports, and would like to know the Churches views on these happenings at this present time. Finally, I hope your visit to Malta will inspire its people to be a light to lighten the dfarkness in this increasingly material world. Gloria in Pace Deo Robert Owen UK...

    Each time the Pope makes a visit to a country, it revives in our heart, we the christians, the true values of Christianity. I consider myself to be very lucky for many reasons: First for being born in a Christian Maronite (Lebanese Catholics) family, second for being born in Lebanon where Christian faith is very strong, third for having lived at a time where our Pope, John Paul II, is the head of our church. I always think that today's Catholics should be very proud of John Paul II. He is an inspiration to all Christians whether they admit it or not. May god bless christians always with a pope like john paul the second. ...

    Long live the Pope! How I love him and all of his most selfless efforts to bring the GOOD NEWS to all people and all nations. He is a shining Light in this world of sin and darkness. A beacon of hope pointing a sure way to freedom of heart and soul...helping us along the path to the most loving heart of the Divine Saviour, Jesus Christ. He is an example of what we must all strive for: To bring the love of Christ to our brothers and sisters. I do believe that when we die and are face to face with God, He will ask..."Where are the others?" How many people have we brought to Christ today? How many difficult people have we forgiven? Have we loved the unlovable? God, give me Your GRACE and your Love! Without it, I am nothing.......

    Our Lord Jesus help me: I hope that The Pope might see this and evvoke his powers to God I am sorry if this is not proper please remove it but e-mail me ant tell me where to post this request. Help me with this terrible thing that has happened to our lives. My woman of seven years “Andrea Ritter” who I love most dearly with all my heart and was a good Christian woman met this man at work “Anthony Duplessis”. This man goes about telling every one he is the Anti Christ or Satan and boasts about it in a most evil way bragging about it. Even the people he worked with call him the Anti Christ he did work in the Whitehouse as a computer tech that makes it even scarier. He mocks God and is only interested in his greed for sex and money and power all, which he has promised Andrea if she stays with him and he flaunts it by letting her have his gold card to get things. He told me how stupid and why don’t you get a job. I am disabled and have been for four years. He told me I was and not to bother her with my problems and mocked me for being disabled calling me a crippled fool laughing at me. She thinks that it is a story and a joke that he is telling people he is Satan just to be funny but why would anyone want that as a credit unless they really felt that way. When I was away one day they came to my home and got some of Andreas clothes she left with him and never came back that was eight weeks ago. While they at my home my sister’s children 17,14,8,and 4 and who lived with us ask him his name he told them he was “Satan” and laughed and sneered at them then mocked them as he left with “Andréa. And why would he look into little children’s faces and say I am Satan which is still haunting them today what kind of evil hearted person would do that. Ashley who is eight has drawn pictures of Satan and ask why he is so bad to people and why did aunt Andrea do this to me. I have started taking Ashley to church with me and she is very happy that uncle (Jim) loves her and is doing this. Even though I am disabled and in constant pain she all of the sudden did not care, she left me with all the bills over three thousand dollars worth. I have paid them all but it left me with little to go on I depended on her and she took all the money. I don’t care about the money as long as I have Jesus I will be ok. I don’t look for pity please don’t think that is what I am looking for I am still strong of heart. I had no way of knowing what had happened to her for quite some time as she would not take my calls at her work and I have no car she took that to. Now Andrea has been fired from her job as a computer tech she had a great career going and now it is ruined, and all is going bad for her she wrecked her car and is not doing well with her health she has contracted some type of pelvic disease or infection of her female organs. She cannot sleep, her soul is week and she says she is loosing her mind at times. But still she stays with him and drinks and runs around she never did that before we had a happy life opera, music, theater our pets and a great family. Andrea has a daughter Tory 12 from another man and she has not seen her for two months I ask her how Tory was and she said she cried because Andrea told her I was crazy and that is why she left me. Tory always said I was the best step dad in the world and hugged and kissed me like her own dad. Duplessis is never is far from Andrea when she is on the phone to my sister or me he is always with her and telling her to say things mean things. I have been struggling myself though this fight against what I see as evil, with Jesus Christ as my power. But I am in a bad way right now and have said and done things to make it worse all from my mental pain and anguish over the woman I love being in such a place with evil around her. I lost my temper and damaged his truck when I saw them together, what a stupid foolish thing for a man of my age to do. And now she has put a restraint order on me. He will not let her come to Edgewater unless he is with her. He came to court when we had to appear for the restraint order I prayed so hard all morning and even until we were called to the stand. The Judge to every ones surprise said I want both of you to go someplace in the court house a private room or the end of the hall and talk to each other alone and work some of this out. We did and we were in the hall and Duplessis came storming slamming the door out of the courtroom and glared and cursed under his breath as he left the building. I have the right to talk to Andrea on the phone but he forbids he to call me or he will kick her out. They got into a big argument in the parking lot and Andrea was crying. When I left as he was screaming at her. He took “Andrea” away and she has not returned home since not for anything, none of her family heir looms her baby things her baby pictures, jewelry-clothing nothing, all her most prized things are still hear. She never calls or asks about her pets two cats and a dog that she loved very much and she says she is not coming back to this house and she really does not care about anything. I told her I was praying for us day and night and she said no prayers would help. She seemed to change overnight like she was someone else that none of us knew she was hateful to every one and not like her loving kind self at all. And I know it is not drugs she hates them of did. I pray for her soul day and night and for Jesus Christ to let her see that this evil that Satan’s disciple is working his evil is destroying all the love he can before God throws him into the pit. I have talked to her by phone ask her to come home but she just says that this is not her home any more. This man has money and power and a half million-dollar house and lots of powerful friends. Andrea even told me that she did not believe in anything anymore and that she thought that if I prayed to God for her he would not here me. She said pray for your self I don’t need it, I do pray for continued strength and wisdom and relief from sorrow in Jesus name. I think he is listening even closer or perhaps to see if I truly have faith, as he has not completely answered my prayers yet. Andrea is a Christian she said she just wanted to crawl in a hole and die she felt so bad and she was ashamed every time I talked to her about this. I ask her to please go to Church with me but she said she did not have time and would not go. She is full of hate for me and acts like she never knew me at times. When she is not around him she seems to be a little more herself and even said I never wanted this to happen. Then he steps in and it is the same again. I have investigated him and his family and found out that his father was a weapons designer for the military with a boastful web site as to how many people his weapons have killed it was some kind of electronic warfare. Also that he runs a company called (Imagic) his whole family is telling Andrea she should stay away from any of the people she knew and they will come and get her things at some point. It has all the classic signs of a cult type environment I found this out through some research I did. I ask you to please have as many people of God as you can to Pray for “Andrea” and for her to return to Gods love I am asking in Jesus Christ name “please” pray for her I don’t want her to be lost forever. I have read that the Anti Christ has many followers to do his dirty work; this man “Anthony Duplessis” is one of them. I see the work of Satan is everywhere in Washington DC it scares me to think of it. I really never thought much of it before. We came hear from a small town in Colorado and I see what every one warned me about now and it has happened. Andrea was such a beautiful wonderful and happy person full of love and smiles before this happened, you would have wanted to call her your friend. I am deeply saddened by this my heart is broken. I know God will answer my prayers in time but I must tell the world of the evil that lurks about destroying good lives. I feel that I must fight no matter what I will never give up. I may even loose my place that we rented but if I have to live under a bridge well ok. I will keep on fighting this evil with my prayers to Jesus. I ask in Jesus name God Save her for now she is lost to us and cannot see the truth. And of you all who receive message please pray for me to have all my faith in Jesus Christ and our Lord Gods strength to guide me on this mission. And for God to guide Andrea and for his divine power to stop this terrible thing before she is truly lost to us forever. Please if you know any special prayers to defeat Satan send them to me. I will be careful and not use them for any wrong purpose. I am feeling week my health is not improving as I do not eat right now and I hardly sleep I can’t stop thinking about it. I need your help in prayer and support just e-mail takes away the loneliness and pain. And pray for God to please return “Andrea” to us where she is truly loved and let Jesus heal us all and that we can live in the love and light of our Lord forever. And may Gods love and The Love of Jesus Christ and the Holey Spirit keep all of us safe from Satan. And may we live in his Holy Love and light forever “AMEN” Glory be to God.

    I come here on what is considered to be the Holiest day on the Christian calendar to once again post My disrespect for the shitty doctrine of Jesus. What you stupid pilgrims celebrate today was a fraud, just like everything that liar Jesus said and did. The only way that His philosophies got to where they are today is through murder and destruction of lives. The Pope swam the river of blood that the warriors of Jesus spilled to get to where he is today. No philosophy that used those type of tactics can be any good at all, only the dogmas of controlling people and using them for your own benefit does anything like that. The power of the human mind is supreme. The likes of the lying Pope and that motherfucker Jesus feared that. so they pushed their doctrines on people to try and blunt that power. Fuck them, for I repudiate the lying words of Jesus on this Easter Sunday as I do every day, for I will not be destroyed by the doctrines of the fuckin' Church. Don't follow their lies, and you will find the answers you seek, not just further questions like the Church offers you....

    Dear Pope John Paul, My Son Ryan Shea has been in you presence many times, the last time was shortly after Christmas, he and his girlfriend left Nebraska the day after Christmas and spent 10 days in Rome. I am so proud of him he has really inspired me spiritually and just knowing that he was so close to you has given me a wonderful feeling in my heart. I have just finished saying the "Chaplet of Mercy" it is Good Friday. I am trying to find out if there is still a newspaper called "Divine Love" still being published. It came out of Fresno, California many years ago. If anyone knows would you please let me know. God Bless You Holy Father, you are truly one of our greatest Popes and I am so blessed to be here during your reign. You are such a kind and wonderful man. God must love you very much. Wishing you a very Holy Easter and continued blessing from God. All my Love to You. Susie Hestermann...Tecumseh, Nebraska, U.S.A. ...

    How did you come to know god? Were you born with a knoledge of your beliefs or is every thing you know or "think you know" about the world been taught to you by pasters untill you were old enough to study on your own.because once you study on your own its to late, you have had the belief system pounded into your head and are so confused that you would fight to protect the false truths of false prophets. In short I hate you and your entire religion for the pesecution I have pesonally suffered at the hands of CHRISTIANS (or at least thats what they think they are) for my beleifs. the number of christians gets smaller every day and in the future christians will be the minority. Then you will be riticuled for your beliefs as there leader. So go and have fun getting drunk off wine and molesting alter boys father because some day the world will come to understand the false truths of christianty. Thank you for posting this for all to see, Archbishop Stubbs...

Peter Lovric - Auckland, New Zealand ..... Pope John Paul
Tuesday, April 3 2001 4:4:8

    Dear Pope John Paul II There is a pertinent question I have to ask you as it has impacted on my spirtual walk with God. According to the Bible, Jesus said: " believe and be baptised ". Jesus, himself was dedicated as a child, but only baptised at the age of thirty. How can the Roman Catholic Church then advocate baptising children at a very young age, when they cannot decide for themselves whether they want to follow Jesus or not. Should the Roman Catholic Church not reconsider its position on this and rename the ceremony that most of us went through when we were a few months old to be a dedication service. Where the parents of the child, along with the community, promise to instruct the child in the faith, so that, when they are able, they can make their own decision as to whether or not they will follow Jesus. At which point they can announce their belief and be baptised - according to the instruction of Jesus. I am at the moment preparing to be baptised as I consider the ceremony I went through as a baby to have been a dedication ceremony. Could you or one of your assistants please take time out to enlighten me about the situation. Thank you for your cooperation. Yours respectfully. Peter Lovric...

    The feeble efforts by the administrators here to try and stop me from saying the things that I do are dismal failures, just like the equally feeble words of Jesus and John Paul 2. I will not be stopped from saying how those words are nothing but lies and that those of you that follow that are nothing more than pathetic fools. Following a doctrine of lies and deceit is not the way to go in life. The Pope and his types are nothing more than vile usurpers that take the lives from people in so many ways just to benefit themselves. The doctrines of the Bible are all lies designed to keep men down so that other men benefit. It is not any word from a Divine or Supreme Being.  Follow your mind and you will find true freedom, you will not find it in a dogma of any kind....

She raised all eight of us children by herself after my father left. If it is not possible to meet your holiness, Pope John Paul, could a letter signed by him be sent? My brother James Ewens has also requested a possible meeting while she is in Rome next week, he is currently serving on the USS California and has left on a 6 month cruise. May God continue to bless you and the work you do, thank you for your time. Julie Cicero...

My father left her after twenty years of marriage and with eight children, myself being the seventh. She continued caring and devoting herself to all of us and has never remarried because she knows God's word. One of her wishes is to meet the Pope and I hope that this could come true for her as she is leaving to visit my sister in Germany and plans to be in Rome the last week of March.

    Dear good man, i admire you for your works and authority across the world. you have lived long and prosperous and stayed reverent to g-d. fighting the voices of those who chastise you for the wicked men who sat in the same chair. it is not your fault and therefore you should not be blamed. the chance of you seeing this is slim and the chance of others reading is pretty high, regardless it must be written. The onslaught of hatred is pulverizing the faithful and killing them. soon they will all be dead. this is why i am here. my name is andrew, when i was a child i had a dream, there were two angels and a chest, in the chest was a sword. One of the angels placed the sword within me and healed me. since then i have committed much sin yet at the same time i speak g-ds word. in the dream g-d explained my being and soul, since i can remember i have spoken to g-d and received word from him. there are things i know and things i must speak of but i cannot out of fear. i have done self abuse, been addicted to drugs, and committed petty crimes. i have been forgiven by praying for penance and apologizing being truly sorry, and peace he did grant me. i have written odes poems and journals all dealing with daily life and its error. i prophesy the current events and people listen, but they wish not to see because of my past. there are things i must tell you, it is very important that i may write or speak in private with you. thank you, and take this letter seriously....

    I am Protestant, but have many Catholic friends. I have read Pope John Paul's book Crossing the Threshold of Hope and found it to be very inspiring. I believe we have more in common than we realize, and that all Christians should unite and serve Christ to defeat evil in the world. I greatly admire the stand the Church has taken against abortion. Someone did mention something to me recently which I wanted clarified. What is the Church's stand on the afterlife for babies miscarried, aborted, or stillborn? I was told the Church's stand is that they do not go to heaven. If others could respond, I would appreciate it. I promise no inflammatory remarks will ever be made by me. I simply want to have a greater understanding of this issue. In Christ, Janice...

Prof.George Menachery - OLLUR Thrissur City, India ..... Vatican Adventure Pope John Paul II Election
Sunday, February 25 2001 22:50:47

    I shall be most grateful if this interesting (it is hoped) account of events connected with the election of Pope John Paul II is brought to the Pontiff's attention which surely HH would relish. And others connected with the Vatican. Pl. do the best to that end. -Prof.George Menachery (http://www.indianchristianity.com) Roman Holidays of the Writer turn into a Memorable VATICAN ADVENTURE Prof. George Menachery had read and written much about PAPAL ELECTIONS. When he went to Rome as a free lancer for the October 1978 election where the conclave of Cardinals chose the present Pontiff His Holiness Pope John Paul II, he had merely wanted to experience at first hand the joy and excitement of a papal election as described in classics he had read many times over such as Morris West’s ‘SHOES OF THE FISHERMAN’, Irvinng Stone’s ‘The Agony and the Ecstasy’, and Henry Morton Robinson’s ‘The Cardinal’. But his Roman holidays turned into a memorable adventure. Read about it here. October 14,1978. Morning. The Cardinals were arriving one by one for the ‘Mass for the Election of the Pope’. They entered the cobbled courtyard behind St.Peter’s Basilica in huge cars and walked towards the special back-door of the Basilica quite close to the main altar.After the Mass they would enter the Conclave (‘with key’) and proceed to elect behind locked doors the next spiritual leader of the crores-strong Catholic community of the world and the temporal head of the State of Vatican. I was the only Indian among the 1300 press reporters from all over the world in Rome that October accredited by Archbishop Pancharoli’s Vatican Press Office. Of these 300 belonged to the English-speaking group. The Italian group was 320-strong, the French were 200 odd, and the Spanish/Portuguese 140. In addition there were more than 300 TV crew members. Apart from two or three selected TV teams only fourteen of the 1300 reporters who had arrived to report the papal elections were permitted to enter the Basilica for the function. These were selected by lot and I was lucky to get one of those fourteen coveted cards. Some well-known magazines and papers from the States and France were willing to pay huge amounts for this card. In fact some of the fourteen photographers present now at the Basilia door represented the most famous magazines and papers, having procured the cards from the original lucky winners paying quite hefty sums. One of the very first to arrive to attend that crucial function before the all important Conclave locked its doors against the outside world was Lawrence Cardinal PICACHY of Calcutta. As he got down from the huge car on to the vast brick-paved yard and proceeded towards the Basilica my Minolta flashed twice or thrice. One or two other pressmen also photographed the Cardinal from India, I noticed with pleasure. It was with a huge coterie of admirers and followers that Cardinal SIRI arrived.So also Cardinal BENELLI. Both were front runners in the first ballots in the previos election and one of these two was expected to come out of the Conclave as the new Pope. Hence the photographers vied with each other in taking their pictures. I also took one each. But I was now mainly waiting for the arrival of Cardinal PARECATTIL of Ernakulam, ‘my Cardinal’. Then came Cardinal ROSSI of Propaganda in the company of Archbishop lourdusamy (now a Cardinal). They talked serious business for a while before the Cardinal entered the Basilica and Lourdusamy went back. I didn’t forget to snap the duo. But now the sound of music from inside the Basilica was growing louder and louder. Like the Wedding-guest in Coleridge’s ‘Ancient Mariner’ I had to still reluctantly tarry waiting for my Cardinal to arrive. There was still no sign of his car. Most of my fellow photographers were preparing to enter the church to cover the Mass and the decisive guide-line speech to the Cardinals. It was then that I noticed a solitary figure in red approaching from the huge gateway. This Cardinal looked lonely, tired, and crestfallen, yet somehow upholding the dignity of a prince of the Church. He alone among all the Cardinals arrived on foot, walking hurriedly towards the Basilica. No camera aimed to take his picture coming as he was without benefit of admirers and supporters. One or two of the big-time photgraphers from the US were looking at this pitiable figure almost it seemed contemptously. “There are lots of unused frames in my Minolta. I need only a few more to cover Cardinal PARECATTIL. So why not snap him, whom nobody appears to care for?”, I thought. And so I took a photo of this lonely man. He raised his head in some surprise, and went in silently. Soon afterwards Cardinal Parecattil came from the Jianicolo hospital where he was staying, smiled at me,and went in, the very last Cardinal to enter the Basilica. October 16,1978. Evening. With thousands I stood in the Piazza San Petro between the colossal columns of Bernini near his fountain and the huge obelisk in the Vatican looking at the thin pipe raising its head to the left of Michaelangelo’s mammoth dome from the famous fresco-adorned Sistine Chapel to see whether it would spit white smoke this time, fiftysix long hours and seven ballots after the Cardinals had been locked up inside to elect one, most probably from among themselves, as the new successor of St. Peter. Two days back I had the rarest of privileges to study the arrangements in the conclave area as the goddess of fortune had given me one of the sixty cards distributed by lot among the 1300 journalists to inspect the secrets of the Conclave. Now I looked at the balcony of the Basilica to test my newly bought binoculars. Suddenly the tip of the pipe began to spit white smoke. The crowd began a deafening non-stop shout “Bianca! Bianca!” It’s white, it’s white. “We Have a New Pope! We Have a New Pope!”. Tens of thousands were concentrating on the balcony where the new Pope’s name would be announced and where the Pope himself would eventually appear. But within twentyfour minutes of the election of the Pope Osservatore Romano the official organ of the Vatican came out at 6.43 p.m. carrying a half-page picture of the new Pope. I bought a copy from the boy selling the paper like hot cakes among the crowd to see who had been finally elected. To my surprise I saw the lonely hero of my photograph keenly looking at me from the front page. He was the new Pope. But I didn’t know until then the name or country of KARL JOSEPH WOJTIVA. Even when Cardinal FELICI announced the name in sonorous Latin very few in the crowd could recognise it. Once again the Italian adage was proved true: “He who goes into the Conclave Pope comes out Cardinal” - and the last and very least became the first, a Polaco, a non-Italian in 400 years, that too from the underground of a communist country - from the fourth world, so to say - as had happened to Antony Quinn as Kiril Cardinal Lakota in the Holywood version of The Shoes of the Fisherman. The huge lamps of the Vatican Palace and the Propaganda College started to flood the St. Peter’s Square, together with the huge Roman moon lighting up the whole area and converting night into day. By this time the crowd had swelled to some two-hundred thousand souls filling the whole square and the Via De La Conciliazione up to river Tiber. It was another half an hour before the Pope appeared on the balcony to give his blessing Urbi et Orbi - to the City and to the World. Before giving that Latin blessing he talked to the people in simple Italian - to their great delight and to the displeasure of the Curia officials. ‘Viva il Papa’ Long Live the Pope, the crowd shouted again and again. ‘ Polonnia! Polonnia!’ Poland,Poland. Bearing witness to the birth of a new era the bells in the four hundred churches of Rome began to ring, led by the eleven ton Kanchenone of the St. Peter’s Basilica. October 18, 1978. Morning. When I came to see Cardinal Parecattil once again at the hospital Gianicolo I showed him the pictures I had taken. He couldn’t believe that I had taken a picture of the Pope before the election, because nobody thought he would be elected. It was in a way my visit to Cardinal Parecattil at Ernakulam to bid him bon voyage that was the occasion for my deciding to go to Rome. Bishop Sebastian Mankuzhikkary who knew the Cardinal’s affection for me jokingly said to me then, ‘Are you not going with the Cardinal to Rome?’ I replied, ‘ I will go if he takes me with him.’ After the departure of the Cardinal for the election I brooded over the possibility of going to Rome for the election. I had read up so much on the election for many many years that my desire to be in Rome during an election had become something of an obsession with me. This was my last chance, I thought. When I told Bishop Kundukulam of Trichur and others the same day about my desire they all encouraged me very much in this matter. And so I arrived in Rome just two days after the Cardinal’s arrival. He was very glad to see me there. I was able to meet him there often and learn about the discussions among the Cardinals about the forthcoming election. Cardinal PICACHY and Archbishop LOURDUSAMY also talked to me often. It all helped me to send relevant reports to India. October 21,1978. After meeting every Cardinal individually and after meeting the representatives of the various countries who had arrived to congratulate the Pope he gave an audience to the Press on the eve of the “Coronation”, to which not only the 1300 journalists with Vatican’s accreditation but many more were invited. While waiting at the bottom of the Great Staircase leading to the hall in the Vatican Palace where the audience was to take place somebody who knew me told me to proceed. I didn’t know why I should try to go before the others. Any way i tried. But the two Swiss Guards stooped me with their extended spears. I climbed down the steps. Then somebody from the Oriental congregation appeared from behind the Swiss Guards from the audience hall and beckoned me. Though the guards protested at first finally they allowed me to go up, also possibly because they were amused at my timidity. When I entered the hall many seats were already taken by officials and so on. The man from the Congregation was leading me in when a Rev. Sr. took me under her charge and led me to the benches. She sat at the aisle end of one bench. When I tried to take the seat by her side she asked me to take the seat behind her. At that time I took it as an insult, but she only smiled. She was the person on Radio Vatican who was in charge of all the Polish programmes, and as such was very familiar with the new Pope as he used to give many talks to his people in communist Poland over Radio Vatican. She was a close friend and room-mate or something of the Sr. in charge of the Indian Programmes and hence had seen me often at the Radio Station. That was why she took me under her charge. When the Pope finally came into the hall and was proceeding to the rostrum he looked in our direction, and seeing the Polish Sr. came towards us. He came and stood in front of us and began to talk to the Rev. Sr. Although the well-built ecclesiastic who was the Pope’s body guard tried to prevent it I shook hands with the Pontiff. The Sr. whispered to me, “Say something to the Pope, you may never get such a chance in your whole life.” I gathered all my courage, and in spite of the tough body guard’s piercing looks, asked the pope:” Your predecessor Pope Paul the Sixth did not come to Kerala when he came to India, though there is an Apostolic Church there. Will Your Holiness visit Kerala?” I completed the question somehow. I do not know whether the Holy Father heard or understood me fully. But he replied in perfect English, “Why Not?” That was quite enough for me, and for the body guard too I suppose because he whisked the Pope away towards the rostrum with all his might. After that the next day’s Mass for the Commencement of the Ministry and “Coronation” -the term is no more used and the three tiered crown is no more seen- was not such a great treat though it was plesant to watch the whole function on the steps of the facade from the vantage point of the balconies over the Bernini columns in the company of fellow journalists. January,1985. Why was Cardinal Woitila so late that day on which the Conclave began? Why was he so tired-looking? These questions troubled my mind often in the next several years whenever I looked at the rare Photo that I had published in some papers and at the Vatican accreditation and all those rare and wonderful press cards I was lucky to draw. Then I went to Rome once again in 1985. I had an appointment with the chief of the Vatican Museums. I had persuaded him to allow me to take the photographs of the hundred odd statues of almost all the popular Hindu Gods and Godesses that the ethnological museum possessed for my Indology volume. But when I arrived in the museum for the final agreement the director was absent. But he had made arrangements for me to meet his assistant Msgr. PANKOWSKI, who was from Poland. To curry favour with him I told him that I had organised much of the Malankara Golden Jubilee Exhibition at Kottayam in 1980 that was inaugurated by the Polish Cardinal RUBIN, and a lage picture of the Polish Cardinal was displayed by the organisers in the SEERI building . Then I told him jokingly that I was the only journalist who knew a Polaco would be elected to the Holy See, and I told him the story of the late-coming Cardinal Woitiva. The asst. director jumped up from his seat and told me the following interesting story breathlessly gesticulating and standing all the time. “Do you know why he was late that day?” I said I did not know. Then he said: “ You know he is a great devotee of the blessed Virgin Mary, like most of us Poles.” That was quite true. Most Poles gift you pictures of our lady of CHESTOKOWA, as the Rev. Sr. from RADIO VATICAN had done when we met during the Papal audience.”Almost the whole week long before the commencement of the Conclave ( Msgr. PANKOWSKI continued) the cardinal was away at the Mountain Shrine of mary at MENTORELLA, praying for the church to get a Good Shepherd at the election.On the morning of the Conclave after the prayers he stood talking to a Polish monk there for a few minutes. So when he came to the valley climbing down two miles the only bus to Rome had already gone. Rome was far away and he had to reach Rome before the doors of the Conclave were locked. Then he got a bus but it broke down some thirty miles away from Rome. (Cardinal Woitiva travelled only by bus, and always wore only tattered old black clothes.) There was no other bus. No car also. He approached the driver of an unused bus who was on holiday and told him his plight. The driver felt pity for the Cardinal and took him to the Vatican, the Msgr. concluded. Now I understood why he was late that morning and also why he looked so tired and depressed. Only then did I understand the reason why the Pope soon after his election flew to Mentorella in a helicopter (not in a bus this time!) to venerate the little wooden statue of Mary there. That journey was the prologue to the new Pope’s many journeys to destinations beyond Rome.

Prof.George Menachery - OLLUR Thrissur City, India ..... Vatican Adventure Pope John Paul II Election
Sunday, February 25 2001 22:36:37

    I shall be most grateful if this interesting (it is hoped) account of events connected with the election of Pope John Paul II is brought to the Pontiff's attention which surely HH would relish. And others connected with the Vatican. Pl. do the best to that end. -Prof.George Menachery (http://www.indianchristianity.com) Roman Holidays of the Writer turn into a Memorable VATICAN ADVENTURE Prof. George Menachery had read and written much about PAPAL ELECTIONS. When he went to Rome as a free lancer for the October 1978 election where the conclave of Cardinals chose the present Pontiff His Holiness Pope John Paul II, he had merely wanted to experience at first hand the joy and excitement of a papal election as described in classics he had read many times over such as Morris West’s ‘SHOES OF THE FISHERMAN’, Irvinng Stone’s ‘The Agony and the Ecstasy’, and Henry Morton Robinson’s ‘The Cardinal’. But his Roman holidays turned into a memorable adventure. Read about it here. October 14,1978. Morning. The Cardinals were arriving one by one for the ‘Mass for the Election of the Pope’. They entered the cobbled courtyard behind St.Peter’s Basilica in huge cars and walked towards the special back-door of the Basilica quite close to the main altar.After the Mass they would enter the Conclave (‘with key’) and proceed to elect behind locked doors the next spiritual leader of the crores-strong Catholic community of the world and the temporal head of the State of Vatican. I was the only Indian among the 1300 press reporters from all over the world in Rome that October accredited by Archbishop Pancharoli’s Vatican Press Office. Of these 300 belonged to the English-speaking group. The Italian group was 320-strong, the French were 200 odd, and the Spanish/Portuguese 140. In addition there were more than 300 TV crew members. Apart from two or three selected TV teams only fourteen of the 1300 reporters who had arrived to report the papal elections were permitted to enter the Basilica for the function. These were selected by lot and I was lucky to get one of those fourteen coveted cards. Some well-known magazines and papers from the States and France were willing to pay huge amounts for this card. In fact some of the fourteen photographers present now at the Basilia door represented the most famous magazines and papers, having procured the cards from the original lucky winners paying quite hefty sums. One of the very first to arrive to attend that crucial function before the all important Conclave locked its doors against the outside world was Lawrence Cardinal Picachy of Calcutta. As he got down from the huge car on to the vast brick-paved yard and proceeded towards the Basilica my Minolta flashed twice or thrice. One or two other pressmen also photographed the Cardinal from India, I noticed with pleasure. It was with a huge coterie of admirers and followers that Cardinal Siri arrived.So also Cardinal Benelli. Both were front runners in the first ballots in the previos election and one of these two was expected to come out of the Conclave as the new Pope. Hence the photographers vied with each other in taking their pictures. I also took one each. But I was now mainly waiting for the arrival of Cardinal Parecattil of Ernakulam, ‘my Cardinal’. Then came Cardinal Rossi of Propaganda in the company of Archbishop Lourdusamy (now a Cardinal). They talked serious business for a while before the Cardinal entered the Basilica and Lourdusamy went back. I didn’t forget to snap the duo. But now the sound of music from inside the Basilica was growing louder and louder. Like the Wedding-guest in Coleridge’s ‘Ancient Mariner’ I had to still reluctantly tarry waiting for my Cardinal to arrive. There was still no sign of his car. Most of my fellow photographers were preparing to enter the church to cover the Mass and the decisive guide-line speech to the Cardinals. It was then that I noticed a solitary figure in red approaching from the huge gateway. This Cardinal looked lonely, tired, and crestfallen, yet somehow upholding the dignity of a prince of the Church. He alone among all the Cardinals arrived on foot, walking hurriedly towards the Basilica. No camera aimed to take his picture coming as he was without benefit of admirers and supporters. One or two of the big-time photgraphers from the US were looking at this pitiable figure almost it seemed contemptously. “There are lots of unused frames in my Minolta. I need only a few more to cover Cardinal Parecattil. So why not snap him, whom nobody appears to care for?”, I thought. And so I took a photo of this lonely man. He raised his head in some surprise, and went in silently. Soon afterwards Cardinal Parecattil came from the Jianicolo hospital where he was staying, smiled at me,and went in, the very last Cardinal to enter the Basilica. October 16,1978. Evening. With thousands I stood in the Piazza San Petro between the colossal columns of Bernini near his fountain and the huge obelisk in the Vatican looking at the thin pipe raising its head to the left of Michaelangelo’s mammoth dome from the famous fresco-adorned Sistine Chapel to see whether it would spit white smoke this time, fiftysix long hours and seven ballots after the Cardinals had been locked up inside to elect one, most probably from among themselves, as the new successor of St. Peter. Two days back I had the rarest of privileges to study the arrangements in the conclave area as the goddess of fortune had given me one of the sixty cards distributed by lot among the 1300 journalists to inspect the secrets of the Conclave. Now I looked at the balcony of the Basilica to test my newly bought binoculars. Suddenly the tip of the pipe began to spit white smoke. The crowd began a deafening non-stop shout “Bianca! Bianca!” It’s white, it’s white. “We Have a New Pope! We Have a New Pope!”. Tens of thousands were concentrating on the balcony where the new Pope’s name would be announced and where the Pope himself would eventually appear. But within twentyfour minutes of the election of the Pope Osservatore Romano the official organ of the Vatican came out at 6.43 p.m. carrying a half-page picture of the new Pope. I bought a copy from the boy selling the paper like hot cakes among the crowd to see who had been finally elected. To my surprise I saw the lonely hero of my photograph keenly looking at me from the front page. He was the new Pope. But I didn’t know until then the name or country of Karol Joseph Woitiva. Even when Cardinal Felici announced the name in sonorous Latin very few in the crowd could recognise it. Once again the Italian adage was proved true: “He who goes into the Conclave Pope comes out Cardinal” - and the last and very least became the first, a Polaco, a non-Italian in 400 years, that too from the underground of a communist country - from the fourth world, so to say - as had happened to Antony Quinn as Kiril Cardinal Lakota in the Holywood version of The Shoes of the Fisherman. The huge lamps of the Vatican Palace and the Propaganda College started to flood the St. Peter’s Square, together with the huge Roman moon lighting up the whole area and converting night into day. By this time the crowd had swelled to some two-hundred thousand souls filling the whole square and the Via De La Conciliazione up to river Tiber. It was another half an hour before the Pope appeared on the balcony to give his blessing Urbi et Orbi - to the City and to the World. Before giving that Latin blessing he talked to the people in simple Italian - to their great delight and to the displeasure of the Curia officials. ‘Viva il Papa’ Long Live the Pope, the crowd shouted again and again. ‘ Polonnia! Polonnia!’ Poland,Poland. Bearing witness to the birth of a new era the bells in the four hundred churches of Rome began to ring, led by the eleven ton Kanchenone of the St. Peter’s Basilica. October 18, 1978. Morning. When I came to see Cardinal Parecattil once again at the hospital Gianicolo I showed him the pictures I had taken. He couldn’t believe that I had taken a picture of the Pope before the election, because nobody thought he would be elected.

You are the only pope I've "known" in my lifetime. I admire you for your courage to speak and show God's life, love and grace even though the way of the Cross is against the current of popular culture. You're an inspiration and example for me. In your lifestyle, I see an example of how to truly live my life with Jesus as the one and only true God and Savior of my life and the world. To God be the Glory-in Jesus name....

    i want to bring to your attention something that you may never be aware of i am one of the offspring of a very remarkable lady that recently expired on th. feb.08,2001 at the age of 74. let me tell you about my mom she was a very religious person for 36 years she was bed bound due to an injection she received when she was 39, this lady my mom carried her cross w/o one complaint, she always taught us how to forgive, always to pray, little by little most of her relatives stayed away, mom felt this because we felt this yet her prayers is all she needed many of her loved ones came to her for prayer and the prayers were always answered. mom loved us all unconditionally., i know that our pain for her loss will never be erased but being able to share her with some one whom is very holy gives me much comfort to be able to share her love and pain .to us her children she was something sacred that god gave to us and i know that he has her name in bold letters in his book and that her praying or the way she has touched many lives doesn't end there i know that her life has just begun and that now she is able to walk. i want to thank you for inspiring her life and for the goodness that still remains in the world my mom was like a saint to us . if i was a holy one i'd make her a saint for all to pray to but i know that god already has chosen her as his own thank you also for my brother manuel whom gave up his life to care for her while the 8 of us went about our lifes. please remember them in prayer at my moms memorial 02/16/2001 @2:00P.M @27402 PARKWOOD AVE MADERA, CA. 93637 559-662-1962 at the home of my mom thank your for your blessings terrie l- ross...

I wish that I could meet him but as his health deteriorates that seems unlikely. He gives strength to me when I see him struggling and knowing that even this "HOLY" man has pain.

    I've always wanted to tell the Holy Father how much I love him and pray for him that Our Lord protect him and keep him safe and in good health. Ever since he became Pope he re- minded me of my grandfather, my mother's dad. She too is a devout Catholic and my father as well. We all love our Pope and send him many warm hugs and kisses. May God bless him and keep him. Thank you.-...

    Dear Holy Father, For the last 20 years, I've listened to you through the radios, read your books, watched you on the televisions, observed your missions through all the visits you paid to many nations and people around the world and heard others talking about you, your speeches and your initiatives. What you've done have been wonderful and very helpful to me and to the world. I feel lucky to find this web site and have the chance to write to you. While many people are destroying the world (in many senses) , you are constructing it with an enormously admirable efforts, inspite of all kind of oppositions, difficulties and blasphemy. I feel that you alone do the work of hundreds of people at the same time. I, like you father, came from a communist country, where freedom is limited to minimum, human rights are not respected at all. Therefore I understand how difficult you've been through for all the years. Many persons in free countries like USA don't understand what the truth is. They don't appreciate all the precious things they have for free. They just think about sex, money, hatred, jelousy, madness .... So what they talk , they write are usually really bad and worthless. However, Holy Father, there are millions of people like me, on your side. I wish you all the best in your missions. Once again, Thank you and God bless you; Knowing that I pray for you everyday. Que Dieu vous protege and vous supporte ! Duc Nguyen. ...

I would also like to thank the Lord for sending His Holy Spirit to lead the new evangelization, the new spring-time of the Church. John Paul has been the faithful servant who has ceaselessly announced the Good News from his position as successor of St.Peter....

    Dear friends: I truly believe John Paul ll is the greatest living human being on the face of the earth. My only regret in life is I will never meet him to tell him how much I love him and what he means to me and so many other like me. He has given me so much faith and hope and I wish I could put it into words to express myself. My morning and evening prayers start out for him. I pray to God he is with us for a long time more. Thank you God for this jewel of our church! Yours in Jesus and Mary, Ron Venditti Medjugorje Center of Pacifica ...

    To Whom It May Concern: I am interested in writing his Holiness to meet him during my visit to Rome in April. I come from a very religious, Polish family. My grandparents were from Warsaw. I was brought up not only in the Catholic faith, but in believing that Pope John Paul is one of the greatest Catholic's of all time. I have completed many missions and visited many of the holy sites. This would be the culmination of my faith. Please supply an address of which to write to request such a brief experience. I thank you. .......

    Dear Holy Father: We pay tribute today to our greatest humanitarian, next to you, Your Holiness, her counterpart, and one you would most like to acknowledge, as well, at this wonderful moment in time. These are but a few of the most wonderful "words of wisdom" that she spoke herself with the softness of a heavenly angel - as her feet walked Mother Earth bestowing blessings for all mankind. We love you Mother Teresa and pray for you at this hour as you, too, descend to this earth to enjoy the fruits of your labor of love in mankind by leading us to discover the beauty of life in the face of poverty, hunger and strife. To quote Mother Teresa, our most spiritual saint in heaven at this moment, Peter and I would like to depart this mission that we have carried out in your holy name on earth, which is but a reflection of God the Father in Heaven and His Heavenly Hosts, and Communion of Saints, Amen. To pay homage to our Heavenly Mother, we offer these words today as a ray of hope and sunshine that our mission in God is complete: "It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing. It is not how much we give, but how much love we put in the giving. "Speak tenderly to they, the little lambs of God through whom we are born again. Let there be kindness in your face, in your eyes, in your smile, in the warmth of your greeting. Always have a cheerful smile. Don't only give your care, but give your heart as well." ...

    Dear Supreme Pontiff, his Excellency, Pope John Paul II. Most of my life I have lived with sin and I never made a confession to the father of my family church. I was born in June on the 28th day in the year nineteen hundred and eighty, and was baptized in the house of our Lord. Dear father, as I prepare to embark on my studies away from home, I must leave the one true woman I have ever loved. We have been together for almost three years. She knows that if we are to truly be of each other then we must trust that the heavenly father will guide us to each other at the time of my studies conclusion in the spring of the 2004th year of our Lord. Please give us the strength and the wisdom to stay true to each other for the rest of our lives and that we may remain forever together in the kingdom of our Lord. Amen....

    Dear Pope John Paul, I am a 24yr old Zambian man who respects your wisdom and integrity as a shining example to the Catholic Church and the whole world.I was born in September on the 6th of 1976. I almost died at birth but the intercession of the Holy Mother saved me.I am baptised though I am yet to receive communion.I have a story to tell you Dear Overseer of our church. In March 1998,I was greatly disturbed by the death of my sister,the previous month.Whilst I sat in the sitting room watching television, I thought to myself why I had never seen a movie about the children of Fatima.At that moment a small bright dot of light grew from beyond the screen from a place that seemed far away towards myself. Before my unworthy eyes was a vision of the Holy Mother of God covered in the greatest dazzling light which I later learnt is known as glory. She was the most beutiful woman I have ever seen.She was clothed in a garment resembling scarlet or purple,it had the appearance of being dotted with thousands of shining stars.Her face, hands and feet were uncovered,whilst her hair was covered by a veil. In her right hand was a red Rosary.She had an expression of shyness and love as she would look at me in fleeting moments.My heart burned like fire as I looked at her .Her bare feet stood on the top part of the earth which was mere earth.i.e. without vegitation.Her feet were stepping on a dead greenish snake. To me it symbolised that we shall overcome.The moment I doubted what had happened,she disappeared. Our dear pope I am saddened that even after witnessing all this I am unhappy because I have failed to live a clean life,free of alcohol and promiscuity, pray for me that I might not suffer upon my death and that I may reform and the Good Lord my saviour may have mercy on me. Forgive my sins Father because the spirit is willing but the flesh weak. May God give you long life to look after your sheep, THANKYOU....
