"Let’s start looking forward through his eyes" –  said an American Catholic writer, author of the biography of Pope John Paul II, entitled "Witness of Hope".




Bernard Lecomte
He was an international but also a polish pope – a French journalist, author of a biography of John Paul II.

"Would he, as Pope, defend the value of suffering from the beginning to the end of his pontificate if he were not marked throughout his life by the atrocities of war?  Would he, as Pope, remind us of the importance of Europe's roots to such an extent if he were not the son of a nation that loved European values so much?

Would John Paul II have come up with the idea of creating World Youth Day if he hadn't been a student of the Jagiellonian University before, if he hadn't been a lecturer in Lublin and if he hadn't devoted his whole life to the affairs of young people?
Finally, would John Paul II defend human rights to such an extent if he had not been a citizen of a country that had endured the restrictions of the communist regime for 30 years? Well, dear friends, all this should be remembered when thinking about John Paul II.
Poles can therefore be proud of this great anniversary." - said Lecomte.
