Photo of the Day

November 24, 2012
CNS photo from the Vatican
The caption on the photograph reads: "Pope John Paul II (center, in red boots) prays with a group of skiers before heading down a slope in this 1984 file photo. The pontiff, who enjoyed skiing in his native Poland before his election, was able to slip away to ski only a few times as he led the worldwide church."
