Billy Graham once said of Pope John Paul II that he will “go down in history as the greatest of the modern Popes.  He is the strong conscience of the whole Christian world.”  There is no one who has spoken with a greater range and intensity on behalf of human dignity than this Pope.

Msgr. Weber cherished the Pope’s visit to San Fernando Mission in 1987.
