Two years ago today, I remember waking up very early before dawn and hearing over EWTN news that Pope John Paul II had just passed away a few hours before.
This year, the diocesan investigation phase of his beatification process has just closed and thus began the Vatican phase of the cause...
And here's one of my favorite quotes:
"Do not be afraid. Do not be satisfied with mediocrity. Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch."
