Fr. Barron on Blessed John Paul II – Catholicism Series

Editor’s Note:

Fr. Robert Barron speaks on Pope John Paul II in this brief excerpt from his Catholicism series. He comments on the amazing role the Holy Father played in the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe… “If someone would have told me when I was a kid in the 1970’s that the Soviet Union and its communist empire would collapse with barely a shot being fired and that one of the principal instigators would be the pope of Rome, I would never have beleived it…”

Watch and listen to the Fr. Barron’s commentary…
