Don Bosco's Popes: Pope John Paul II

The following comes from

All the important events of the Salesian Society are highlighted by the Blessing and oftentimes by the presence of the Pope, as in the case of the recent celebration of the centenary of Don Bosco’s death where Pope John Paul II visited The Becchi, Chieri and Valdocco, declaring: “ You know well that the decisive years of my life were spent in a Salesian Parish, the Parish of St. Stanislaus Kostka in Krakow; I lived a time of conversion precisely in the this Salesian Parish environment... and, coming here, in these places where Salesianity was born, I can relive the experience of my encounter with the Salesians, with John Bosco”. (From his speech on 2.9.1988).
