Some Sisters of our Congregation worked tirelessly in hidden, consecrated service in the episcopal residence and curia in Krakow and later went to serve in the papal household and offices of St. John Paul II. Sisters of our Congregation were present at the Pope's deathbed.
VIDEOS ON FORMED If you have access to a parish providing this program, FORMED has wonderful videos on St. John Paul II"s life and message. Highly recommended is the Fr. Michael Gaitley MIC series on Formed, "The Second Greatest Story Ever Told" whose main protagonist is St. John Paul II. Go to www.formed.org.
