Did You Ever Meet Pope John Paul II? — Bishop Barron on Vatican II

Friends, in the coming days, I will be sharing a series of brief video reflections—recorded during a recent conversation with Rocco Buttiglione for the Hildebrand Project—on Vatican II, Catholic liturgy and tradition, and the mission of evangelization. In this first video, I reflect on Pope St. John Paul II. Though I never met him, he meant the world to me. What a model to have—his papacy was a lodestar for a new generation, and with it came a fresh wind blowing through the Church.
