Benedicto XVI“I trust that, through daily study of the sources and cooperation with bodies of similar character both in Rome and elsewhere, this Center will become an ever more important point of reference for all who seek to know and appreciate the vast and rich heritage that he left us."The John Paul II Foundation has a museum in Rome, and a hotel for pilgrims that also organizes religious and cultural events.AOCTVHC
