Pope Francis on John Paul II: He was the great missionary of the Church

(-ONLY VIDEO-) During the on flight press conference from Brazil to Rome, ;Pope Francis talked about how he remembers John Paul II, including why the future saints reminds him of St. Paul. ; Regarding John Paul II, I would say he was he great missionary of the Church. He was a missionary, a man who carried the Gospel everywhere, as you already know better than I. How many trips did he make? He kept on. ;He felt this fire of carrying forth the Word of the Lord. He was like Paul, a man like Saint Paul. I think this is something great. To canonize them both together will be, I believe, a message for the Church. These two were wonderful, both of them. ; JRB/KLH ; MG JM -PR Up: PM #Papa
