I had never known what it meant to be a Catholic Christian until I expereinced WYD in Toronto. I saw a man who did not let age, sickness, or the opinions of others guide and rule his life. I saw a man that drew together the youth of the world and challenged them to step outside themslves; outside of the world and to step into the light of Christ. He showed us that through Mary we could reach Christ and even provided us countless saints to look up to; but the greatest example was the one he provided through his actions and deeds. Thank you for challenging me to embrace my faith and take it to others. It was through you that I found Christ in my life and yearned to have my being enveloped in his love...What greater gift could you have given me. Thank you. John Paul II, the world will miss you.
