famous birthday boy

Unfortunately for young George, Sister Rose Eugene caught him sulking in St. Gabriel’s library, during an especially nasty day.

“Young man,” she confronted him. “Today is Karol Josef Wojtyla’s birthday.” Do you know who he was?”

“Huh?” he blurted out.

She explained, “Karol’s mother died when he was eight years old. His father and brother both were dead by the time he was twenty one. Because of World War II he was forced to go to school secretly for fear of the Nazis.”

“Your bad breaks shouldn’t discourage you,” she reminded him. “Nothing stopped St.John Paul II.”
