...and we'll be celebrating it by visiting the cathedral in Britain that has him depicted in stained glass.
It's St George's Cathedral, Southwark. Join us there at 3pm today. Nearest tube/ main-line train: WATERLOO.
Over the next years, there will be more and more depictions of St John Paul the Great. There has been a suggestion that there should be a mosaic of him in Westminster Cathedral, which is an excellent idea. How about a statue of him in London? A number of people have expressed interest, and Westminster City Council is happy with the idea...raising the funds would not be difficult, and in fact I have already had people coming forward for that...
Where? somewhere near Westminster Cathedral would make sense...eg at the corner of Ambrosden Avenue?
