CWN Editor's Note: In a talk that was videotaped without his knowledge, an Italian priest who hiked with St. John Paul II recalled that the late Pontiff predicted an Islamic “invasion” of Europe, and said that it could not be met with weapons but only by “faith lived with integrity.” The Polish Pontiff also told US President George W. Bush that he was sacrificing human dignity for US security, according to Msgr. Mauro Longhi.
