I remember in 1979, while living in Chicago, Pope John Paul II became the first Pope to visit the Windy City.  I was a young girl then, but remember my mother taking my brother and I downtown to get a glimpse of the iconic figure.  That day the Pope was able to bring Chicago together.  That day our color, or religious background didn’t matter.

During his speech at Chicago’s Grant Park, he looked out and saw people of different races, beliefs, and, economic backgrounds and  spoke these words:

“This is the way America was conceived; this is what she was called to be. . . . But there is another reality that I see when I look at you. . . . your unity as members of the People of God.”
