In anticipation of his May 1st beatification, the Knights of Columbus Museum is hosting a special exhibit on Pope John Paul II.
The show is titled Blessed: A Tribute to John Paul II.
It features personal effects of the late Pontiff, as well as mementos of his apostolic journeys to North America. Of particular interest, is a video presentation on the Pope’s close relationship with the Knights of Columbus.
Recently Salt + Light CEO Father Thomas Rosica CSB, had an opportunity to present two lectures as a part of the showing: The Great Laboratories of Faith: World Youth Days in the Pontificate of Pope John Paul II
and The Suffering and Death of a Shepherd: What Pope John Paul II taught us in the end
. The first focused on the tremendous social impact of World Youth Day, while the second reflected on the Pope's personal holiness.
Blessed: A Tribute to John Paul II
runs from April 2 to June 30th
. So in addition to taking in some of the beautiful parks in Connecticut, visit the Knights of Columbus museum and take a look at the personal effects of our newest blessed!
