Yesterday was the anniversary of JP2's death. I'll never forget the date because it falls on the day before Rob's birthday (Happy Birthday Honey!).
Anyway, I've been reflecting on John Paul's life these two days and the thing that stays in the forefront of my mind is all of the gifts that he left for the rest of us. The CCC, Theology of the Body, the fall of Communism, the Luminous Mysteries, and so much more. Thank you John Paul!
Heart and Mind magazine has a free unit study available at their website based on the life of JP2. I cowrote it with Cay Gibson and Nancy Brown. It's a pretty fun unit, with recipes, quizzes, and literature recommendations, if you want to check it out.
