"The greatest miracle was that communism collapsed without war and bloodshed," If the collapse of communism was a miracle that can be attributed to JPII, then what of the collapse of Catholicism in Europe? Just wondering...

JPII was like a father, but like every good father, he had a few weak spots. He was asleep at the switch (or preoccupied with the Soviets) when many bishops were appointed. Is it OK to pray for a few miraculous removals?

"Whether or not we see these stories as miraculous signs, they show the human dimension of this pontificate – how the pope was close to people and touched their lives," said author Pawel Zuchniewicz. Can you think of a miracle that DOESN'T show charity and mercy to people? God truly loves squishy thinkers - he made so many of them.
